Sheria Smallwood

A recent Pitt County arrest highlights an apparently growing issue of prescription drug abuse in the east.

Deputies with the Pitt County Sheriff's Office said they arrested 28-year-old Sheria Smallwood after they were contacted by two local pharmacies.

Those businesses told investigators Smallwood was trying to fill fake prescriptions for narcotics.

The 28-year-old is now facing two charges of attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud or forgery. Her bond was set at $5,000.
