Pharmacy Worker Accused of Drug Fraud

A La Crosse pharmacy tech has been busted by cops for helping herself to prescription drugs through an elaborate scheme.  Police say 21 year-old Ashley Lane used the prescription computer system at the northside Shop-Ko in order to file prescriptions with other pharmacies as a fictitious doctor under a false name.  Her bosses finally got wise to the thefts when they realized she'd been filing the prescriptions using the log-in identifications of co-workers who weren't actually working.  Cops say Lane filled at least ten prescriptions for a schedule four narcotic over the last several months.  Lane says she was fraudulently filling the prescriptions because she needs the drugs and can't afford health insurance.
