LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville man was arrested Sunday on a warrant after police said he duped doctors into giving him prescriptions for narcotics over a five month period.

Forty-two-year-old Michael Oswald is charged with 22 counts of attempting/obtaining a controlled substance by fraud/false statement.

According to the police report, Oswald obtained overlapping prescriptions for hydrocodone and tramadol from more than 10 different doctors from late March to August. Oswald would then take the prescriptions to various pharmacies in the Metro area to have the prescriptions filled.

Police records show Oswald received more than 200 hydrocodone pills in May by misleading doctors and dentists.

Oswald was brought in on a warrant issued in September.
