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.
