39 arrested in the Canaries for falsfying prescriptions

The National Police have arrested 39 people in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria for falsifying prescriptions for psychotropic medications which were dispensed at chemists in the Las Palmas, Tenerife and Granada provinces.

2,200 false medical prescriptions were found.  Once the prescriptions were dispensed by the chemists, the drugs were sold  on the black market at elevated prices.  The investigation began when police found that a large number of old style prescription books had been stolen from health centres, and the doctors concerned did not recognise the signatures on the prescriptions.
