HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Police believe a Sacramento woman used fake prescriptions to pick up at least 20 bottles of narcotic cough syrup from Portland-area pharmacies, intending to sell them in California.

KATU-TV reports (https://is.gd/vt01qV ) 20-year-old Sirenna Guice (suh-REE’-nah GYS’) made an initial court appearance Monday in Hillsboro. She is held on charges of identity theft, prescription fraud and possessing a controlled substance.

She was arrested Saturday at a drug store in Gresham where employees recognized the woman from a flyer that described a woman dressed in Mickey Mouse cartoon scrubs forging prescriptions. A caller would phone in correct doctor information with fake patient names.

Police found more than 20 bottles of cough syrup in the car in which the woman was arrested.
