A 44-year-old woman has been charged with the theft of more than $2,700 worth of prescription drugs.

Fiona Iris was accused of using invalid prescriptions 41 times to obtain codeine and atasol painkillers.

Prosecutors alleged in Magistrates’ Court yesterday that Ms Iris, from Pembroke, stole $2,448 worth of codeine and $280 worth of atasol from pharmacies across the island.

Ms Iris was also charged with possession of codeine between December 2017 and last November.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson adjourned the case until September 9 and released Ms Iris on $2,500 bail.
