Deceptive Practice Leads to Warrant Arrest
A mother who filled fraudulent prescriptions for her sick child, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for driving on a suspended license, reports said. Oak Lawn Police reported to Hope Children’s Hospital at 4440 W. 95th St. on a deceptive practice call around 9:40 a.m. The doctor told police that the child’s mother, Cynthia Aburish, 43, of Chicago, allegedly impersonated a nurse and ordered two prescriptions for her child at the Walgreen’s pharmacy in Worth. Police said that Aburish used the doctor’s name to fill the prescriptions. The doctor was advised that because no crime was committed in Oak Lawn, police logged Aburish’s information for Worth Police, reports said. According to police, Aburish admitted to filling the fraudulent prescriptions and knew exactly what her child needed because “it was nearly impossible” to get refills by going through her child’s doctor." Police ran Aburish’s name and learned that she had an outstanding warrant out of Markham. Prescription bottles with her child’s name were also found in Aburish’s purse, police said.
