NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches Police arrested a woman Thursday accused of fraudulently calling in prescriptions for Xanax from the medical clinic in which she worked.

Brenda Reed Miller, 44, of Nacogdoches, is charged with two counts of fraudulent delivery of a controlled substance.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, police determined Miller, who worked as an office manager at Nacogdoches Cardiac Center, called in prescriptions to Walmart for someone who was not even a patient at the clinic on Nov. 16 and Dec. 1.

Police interviewed that person, who said Miller called the prescription for him, but Miller denied involvement. Police obtained cellular phone records and determined that Miller called the prescription in to Walmart.

Police obtained warrants for Miller's arrest on Thursday and arrested her the same day. As of 2:50 p.m. Friday, she remained in custody on a collective bond of $15,000.
