Police are investigating the apparent theft of a prescription pad and doctor’s stamp from St. Vincent’s Health Care, 1053 Post Road.
The St. Vincent’s office received a call from a CVS pharmacy in Stratford reporting that a woman was attempting to fill a prescription for percocet. When the pharmacist asked the woman for identification, she fled.
According to the medical office, prescriptions are now printed out and not written from a pad, and the stamp for the doctor in question was missing.
