Tennessee woman arrested for prescription drug fraud

April 14, 2018, Greene County, TN — Kristey M. Belt, 44, of 1325 Whitehouse Road, was taken into custody Wednesday on an active warrant for prescription drug fraud. Belt was also charged with driving on a suspended license, Greene County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Spears said in a report. Belt was not home when deputies went to the address to serve the warrant, but a short time later, she pulled into the driveway and was taken into custody, the report said. The warrant states that on Jan. 21, Belt filled a prescription for Alprazolam in the name of a recently deceased person. A records check showed Belt’s driver’s license was also suspended for failure to maintain insurance. Bond was set at $11,000 pending a first scheduled appearance Friday in court.

A battery charger and other items were stolen Wednesday from a barn in the 600 block of Dashaway Drive, Deputy Andrew Long said in a report. Also taken were a socket set and a wrench set. The property owner told sheriff’s deputies he found possessions missing when he went into the barn. Combined value of the items was about $325.
