Posted: Updated:

Police in York County arrested a woman Saturday in connection with a prescription drug ring operating out of Washington, D.C.

Ayanna Settles, 22, of Washington, D.C., faces multiple drug charges, from the April 6 incident, including forgery, prescription fraud, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and criminal conspiracy.

Police said Settles gave a forged prescription to a pharmacist at the Giant on Route 15. Police said Settles is part of a ring that traveled to Carlisle, Chambersburg, and Harrisburg in an attempt to obtain Oxycodone.

Police said the group uses computer-generated prescriptions using the names of several local doctors and medical practices. Police said the doctors' signature is then forged.

Police said Settles was also arrested on March 12 for attempting to obtain Oxycodone at the Rite Aid on Route 15 in Carroll Township. She was charged then with prescription fraud, forgery and criminal conspiracy.
