LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)-Surveillance from the CVS Pharmacy on Todd's Road in Lexington shows a woman picking up prescriptions.
But what the pharmacist doesn't know is this woman is not actually the person the pills were filled for.

"We don't understand completely how she got the victim's information," Detective Robert Sarantonio of the Lexington Police Department said. The Detective has shown the medical staff and the victim the pictures of the suspect and they don't recognize her.

Police say in order to fill the prescription, the woman had the victim's birthday and other identifiers needed. This is leading police to believe she could have been behind the victim either in line or gone through her trash and found the information needed there. Either way, police say everyone needs to be careful---and they want to find this woman.

"Just be mindful that these people see these as crimes of opportunity."

Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Call Crimestoppers today at 859-253-2020. It is a free call and it is anonymous.
