The Smithville Police Department has charged a 33 year old Liberty woman with eight counts of prescription fraud for allegedly phoning in several false prescriptions to a local pharmacy over the last four months.

Cynthia F. Heinz of 160 Clear Creek Road, Liberty is under a $20,000 bond and she will be in General Sessions Court on the charges May 29th.

According to Detective Sergeant Jerry Hutchins' Jr., Heinz phoned the Walmart Pharmacy in Smithville on January 18th, February 15th, March 14th, and April 28th and ordered prescriptions in the name of a Lebanon doctor for Loritab and Flexeril. With each call, Heinz, would identify herself as the doctor's secretary and provide the doctor's drug enforcement agency number, which police believe she obtained from a previous handwritten prescription issued by the doctor for Heinz' husband, who was a patient of the Lebanon physician.

Hutchins says on May 16th, when Heinz called in another prescription, pharmacists at Walmart became suspicious and contacted police.

The Lebanon doctor did not authorize any of the prescriptions.

Meanwhile, in other cases, 28 year old David Lynn Martin has been charged with vandalism over $500, DUI, and two counts of aggravated assault. Martin was also cited for violation of the implied consent law and reckless driving. His bond totals $13,500 and he will be in court on the charges June 5th.

On May 15th, at South Fork Apartments, Martin allegedly assaulted his wife, Abigail Martin, and his sister-in-law, Lisa Vogel by pulling his wife's car and knocking the two women down with the door of the car. He was trying to drag Mrs. Martin's car off with a chain hooked to his truck.

In the DUI case, Martin was operating a motor vehicle on Miller Road and was stopped for reckless driving. He had an odor of an alcoholic beverage on his person and was unsteady on his feet. He became violent. No field sobriety tasks were given and Martin refused a blood test.

In the vandalism case, Martin was placed under arrest at South Fork Apartments on Miller Road and when he was put in the patrol car, Martin got violent and kicked out the passenger side door windows of the vehicle valued at over $500.

Officer Matt Farmer arrested Martin and charged him in these cases.
