CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Sulphur woman is facing 28 counts of obtaining CDS by fraud, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on Monday, Sheriff's Office vice detectives arrested 38-year-old Kari D. Johns after an investigation into allegations that she obtained controlled prescription medication by using forged prescription blanks.

Johns is alleged to have obtained numerous prescription pills including amphetamine salts (CDS II), Hydrocodone (CDS III) and Carisoprodol (CDS IV) from November 2012 and January 2013 by utilizing numerous blank prescriptions from a local doctor. 

"When the doctor, whose name was on the prescription, was contacted, it was revealed he did not authorize the prescriptions," the release states.

Johns was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. She was released on a $28,000 bond set by Judge Clayton Davis.
