An employee at a Logan doctor’s office was arrested for allegedly forging prescriptions and trafficking in prescription medication, according to authorities.

Elizabeth L. Noble, 38, of Logan was arrested after investigators with the Hocking County Sheriff’s Office Interdiction Unit and Detective Bureau were notified by a local pharmacy of “some questionable prescriptions” allegedly being filled by Noble, according to a press release by the sheriff’s office.

The release did not name the doctor’s office for which Noble worked, but investigators confirmed the prescriptions Noble was filling were “forged and not legitimate.”

“After evidence was collected, detectives met with Noble who admitted to forging the prescriptions and selling them after she had filled them,” the release stated.

Noble was charged with aggravated trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, deception to obtain a dangerous drug, illegal processing of drug documents, and forgery, all felony counts.

Additional charges are “likely to be presented” to a Hocking County grand jury, the release stated.

She is being held at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail until her arraignment in Hocking County Municipal Court.
