FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield woman is among 10 people arrested for allegedly participating in a network that obtained prescription narcotics through forged prescriptions.

Beverly Cloudy of Fairfield is suspected of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances and obtaining controlled substances through fraud, forgery and deception, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag. The arrests were made Tuesday.

The drug ring obtained the Drug Enforcement Administration registration numbers and medical license numbers of physicians, bought pharmacy-grade prescription paper and created fraudulent prescriptions for narcotic painkillers such as oxycodone and hydrocodone. Members of the ring then allegedly passed the fraudulent prescriptions at pharmacies to get the drugs, the press release said.
