FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - A 34-year-old San Juan County woman is accused of over 140 counts of drug offenses and other crimes accusing her of fraudulently obtaining prescription medication at pharmacies.

Farmington police say 34-year-old Christina Talamante of Flora Vista allegedly used fake names and those of other people when calling pharmacies and saying she was calling in opioid prescriptions from a doctor’s office.

The Daily Times reports that Talamante has pleaded not guilty and that she told a detective she was addicted to Tramadol, taking more than 10 pills a day.

An attorney listed in online court records as representing Talamante did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the allegations.
