Norwood police have charged three people in connection with what they say was a “script and pills” ring involving more than 5,000 Oxycodone pills that were fraudulently obtained over the course of a year. Police received a report that a former employee of a primary care physician in Wellesley was writing false prescriptions for herself and others. Charged with 13 counts of uttering a forged or stolen prescription is Amy Crossley-Puccino, 32, of Norwood, who had worked in the office from which the prescriptions were stolen, according to police. Charged with 25 counts of fraudulently obtaining a controlled substance is Gary Dalton, 38, also of Norwood. Charged with 19 counts of fraudulently obtaining a controlled substance is a woman who was not arrested but was summoned. In addition, all three were charged with one count of possession of Class B Oxycodone, one count of insurance fraud, and one count of conspiracy to violate narcotics laws.
