  • Dover Police have charged a local woman with taking blank prescription forms and using them to illegally obtain drugs.
    Holly Nicholson, 27, of the 100 block of Blue Beach Drive, was arrested March 19, according to documents released by Justice of the Peace Court 7, Dover.
    As documented in the warrant of probable cause, Nicholson allegedly obtained controlled substances, specifically Percocet, by forging physicians’ signatures on the forms. Police also allege she used electronic prescription blanks to falsely obtain the painkiller Tramadol.
    The case came to light when a local pharmacy notified police about a suspected false prescription. A check of the doctor’s office where the prescription allegedly originated showed Nicholson had worked there for approximately six months.
    Nicholson was charged with a single count of theft of blank prescription forms, 16 counts of obtaining controlled substances by misrepresentation, one count of an attempt to obtain a controlled substance by misrepresentation, 16 counts of forgery and one count of attempted forgery.
    She was released from custody on a $35,000 unsecured bond after appearing in JP Court 7.
