MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Prosecutors say a former Memphis police officer has been charged with using fake prescriptions to get weight loss pills.
The Shelby County district attorney's office says 40-year-old Paula Jamerson has been indicted on four counts of obtaining a controlled substance by forged prescription between December 2011 and August 2012.
Investigators say Jamerson stole prescription sheets from a medical clinic where she was a patient and had prescriptions for phentermine filled at various pharmacies.
Jamerson resigned from the force in January. Court records do not show if she has a lawyer.
