Seymour woman arrested on fraud charges

A 30-year-old Seymour woman was arrested Thursday on fraud charges after police said she wrote two prescriptions to herself through her employer’s office.

Carrie Ann Cain was arrested on a Level 6 felony after she wrote prescriptions to herself for antidepressants while working at an office at Schneck Medical Center, police report.

Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott said Cain wrote the first prescription to herself in July 2018 and the second in the fall and adjusted the amount of refills.

Cain was employed in Dr. Amanda Dick’s office at Schneck Surgical Associates, 225 S. Pine St., Abbott said.

Schneck Medical Center confirmed Cain is no longer an employee but declined to share Cain’s title when she worked at the office or how long she was employed there.

Jackson Circuit Court Judge Richard W. Poynter signed a warrant for her arrest Jan. 8, according to court records. Information on the case was filed Jan. 2.

Cain was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 12:58 a.m. Thursday. Bond was set at $1,005 bond during her initial hearing Thursday afternoon in Jackson Circuit Court.

A Level 6 felony carries a sentence between six months and two and a half years upon conviction.
