LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville woman is facing charges that she used the federal ID number of the doctor she worked for and phoned in a prescription for herself.

Erica Lynn Bradford, 34, was arrested on April 2. Police say the day before Bradford called a Walgreen's pharmacy, identified herself as "Lynn from Louisville Dermatology" and placed an order for a controlled substance using the physician's DEA number.

Police said Bradford gave her name as the patient and was recorded on store surveillance video when she picked up the filled prescription.

Bradford is charged with unauthorized procurement of a controlled substance.
