LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – An employee of a medical facility has been charged with obtaining prescriptions illegally.

An arrest report states that Kelly A. McDonough, also known as Kelly A. Lenning, admitted she phoned in and forged unauthorized prescriptions while employed at Injury Rehab Specialist of Louisville.

The report says that between January 2013 and December 2013, McDonough, 43, used the DEA licenses of former employees without their knowledge or consent to phone in or forge the prescriptions. Once the orders were placed, the prescriptions were picked up by McDonough or other people.

McDonough was booked at Louisville Metro Corrections on four counts of unauthorized procurement of controlled substance. She was released from custody early January 23.
