Durham Region police are trying to identify a female suspect who has committed multiple prescription drug frauds in the area and in Toronto.

Officers were called to a pharmacy in Oshawa, Ont. that suspected a customer was attempting to fill a forged prescription for narcotics. The woman provided a prescription note and a health card and requested to fill the prescription for a friend.

Investigators linked the suspect to several other similar incidents. Police believe she may live in Ottawa or in the Toronto area.
