Out on bond from two prior arrests, she allegedly used a fake name to obtain a prescription for opioids and get the prescription filled at a pharmacy in Jefferson City.
For the third time in less than 12 months, a Miller County woman faces multiple felony charges. This time around the charges stem from attempting to illegally obtain a controlled substance, stealing and forgery.
Charges were filed on April 1 against Kellie Ann Quillen, 32, of Lake Ozark. Quillen was arrested by the Missouri Highway Patrol after she was allegedly caught on surveillance video using a forged name and date of birth to receive medical care. She was treated in the emergency room and released with a prescription for hydrocodone. Quillen is accused of having the prescription filled at a Jefferson City pharmacy under the name of Kelly A. King, the same name she used at the emergency room.
According to court documents, a family member tipped police off.
Quillen was out on bond when she was arrested.
Quillen was arrested just last month in Miller County on a separate felony warrant out of Cole County for forgery/stealing/fraud. That case is separate from the eight counts of felony forgery and one count of felony stealing that she was already facing for allegedly stealing from a disabled Miller County resident while working as his home health care provider.
