Police are trying to track down 5 suspects wanted in connection with Prescription Fraud. Investigators say they've been getting Oxycodone at pharmacies in Newark and Middletown for months.

Police are looking for:

  • Michelle Hammond
  • Zonisha Shaw
  • Jeffrey Fisher
  • Gail Perry
  • Khadijah Greaves

This investigation has been under way since September 21st when the first fraudulent script came about.

From the police report:

"Khadijah Greaves allegedly responded to the ACME, located at 950 Elkton Road, on this date and obtained the prescription Oxycodone by presenting the pharmacist with a manufactured script.

" The next case was reported on September 30th at the Happy Harrys located at 216 Suburban Plaza in Newark and involved a fraudulent script. The suspect in this case was identified as Michelle Hammond and she obtained Oxycodone. Another incident was reported on October 12th at the Rite Aid located at 4607 Stanton Ogletown Road in Newark. In this incident, it was allegedly Jeffrey Fisher who presented the false script for Oxycodone. The script was not filled.

" On this same date, October 12th, Zonisha Shaw walked into the Happy Harry's, 4465 Summit Bridge Road in Middletown. She presented a fraudulent prescription to the pharmacist for Oxycodone- which she obtained.

" Next, on November 2nd, Gail Perry allegedly walked into the Rite Aid on Stanton Ogletown Road and presented a fraudulent script to the pharmacist for Oxycodone. This script was not filled."

Police say in each of the incidents, the doctor listed on the script was "Neurological Medicine," a physicians practice in Greenbelt, Maryland. Officials with the practice were unaware of the prescriptions for Oxycodone.

Anyone who may know of the location of the subjects listed in this release is asked to call 302.834.2630 ext. 347 or Crime Stoppers at 1.800.TIP.3333. All of these subjects are wanted for felony level charges related to prescription fraud.
