CLARK COUNTY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- A stolen prescription pad allows a Southern Indiana nurse to prescribe herself nearly 2,500 oxycodone pills.

Indiana State Police have arrested Lisa Keown of Charlestown.

They say she stole a prescription pad from her employer, a Clark County medical facility, and wrote herself 28 fake prescriptions for oxycodone.

She's been charged with forgery and insurance fraud because Keown used her insurance to pay for the prescriptions.
