FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Shelton woman has been charged in connection with a scheme to use falsified prescriptions to buy controlled drugs at the Walgreen’s on Kings Highway in Fairfield, police said.

Cami Demace, 36, of Judson Street, was arrested on a warrant and charged with conspiracy to commit possession of a controlled substance, conspiracy to commit obtaining a controlled substance via fraud, second-degree forgery and conspiracy to commit second-degree forgery, police said.

She was released on a written promise to appear in court on March 16.

The arrest stems from an incident on Oct. 24, 2016 at the Walgreen’s, police said.

A New Haven woman, Christina DeBiase, 34, of Grafton Street, passed an altered prescription for 90 Alprazolam pills to the pharmacy, police said. A pharmacy worker contacted the police and was told to complete the transaction.

When DeBiase left the store with the prescription, she was met by police officers, who arrested her on a variety of charges.

She told officers she was dropped off at the store by Demace, who was going to buy the pills for $500, police said. She also said Demace altered the prescription, police said.

DeBiase was found with other prescriptions for both Alprazolam, an anxiety and panic disorder drug, and Adderall, commonly used for ADHD, made out for both her and another woman’s name, police said.

Police said the street value of Adderall is $6 a pill, while Alprazolam sells for about $4 a pill.

The investigation led to Demace, who is married to a convicted felon and has prior arrests for drug possession and risk of injury to a minor, police said.

She was arrested on Sunday evening following an incident with Shelton Police.
