GREEN, OH (WOIO) -

On the morning of February 12, the Summit County Sheriff's Office was contacted by a doctor's office in the city of Green in regards to a suspicious woman on their property.

When the deputy arrived, the suspect was in her vehicle in the parking lot of the doctor's office. She gave the deputy her actual name, but a false social security number and date of birth. After a search of her vehicle, the deputy located documents from several doctor's offices with 14 different aliases. The suspect admitted to fraudulently obtaining pain medications.
