Kyle Hughes, suspected in prescription fraud case

VAN BUREN AND KALAMAZOO COUNTIES, Mich. (Feb. 12, 2014) – A full prescription fraud investigation is taking shape after a dentist office employee invited people to the office after hours, resulting in stolen information.  Police say patients’ credit card information may also be compromised.

the incident happened on Tuesday at a dental office in Antwerp Township, according to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.  A female employee had stayed after work and invited friends over.  Several items were stolen, including credit cards, blank checks, and shoes — but suspects also took a prescription pad and the doctor’s signature stamp.

Deputies believe the suspects may have called in prescriptions to some half a dozen pharmacies throughout the Kalamazoo area, including Walgreens, Walmart, and Meijer locations.  Once the prescriptions were called in, friends of the suspects would go to the pharmacies and get them filled.

Two suspects are in custody, including a 24-year-old woman from Galesburg.  The other suspect is identified as Kyle Hughes, 23, who is the boyfriend of the dental office employee.  He was previously sought on parole violations.  Both now face multiple charges as this prescription fraud investigation continues.

Police hope to have more information available later in the day on Thursday.

    Now she can go behind bars without him and lose her job and reputation for what? A criminal as not all Ex cons are bad but If they are wanted for absconding then they obviously broke their parole rules so right there is a red flag. People when a person is on a road to destruction you cannot save them all that can happen is something like this ! Remember if they loved you they would never put your life or career in jeopardy ! Please dont go to college to throw it all away for something CALLED LOVE AS THERE IS NOT ENOUGH LOVE IN THE WORLD FOR AN HONEST PERSON TO THROW IT ALL AWAY FOR A BUM.
