Sisters arrested after allegedly altering prescription

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — Indiana State Police arrested two women Thursday on Dubois Superior Court warrants related to alleged prescription fraud.


Pamela K. Hoffman, 59, Loogootee, is charged with Level 6 felony aiding in obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or deceit.

Kimberly R. Feltner, 53, 7814 W. Old State Road 64, Holland, is charged with Level 6 felony obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or deceit.

Police say the women are sisters.

On Sept. 29, Master Trooper Brian LaRoche received a complaint of a prescription being altered and passed. 

LaRoche learned that Feltner of Holland had received a prescription for medication and had allowed her sister, Hoffman, to alter the number of pills Feltner was supposed to receive.

LaRoche found that after changing the quantity of the prescription, Feltner passed the prescription, received the additional medication, and split the quantity with Hoffman.

Charging information alleges that Feltner acquired Norco pills with the altered prescription at the CVS Pharmacy, 610 N. Main St., Huntingburg, on Aug. 27.

Authorities booked both women into the Dubois County Security Center just after 1 p.m. on the active warrants.
