GLASTONBURY, Conn. (WTNH) -- An East Hartford woman turned herself in to police and was charged for illegal possession of a controlled substance.

A complaint was made from a local physician's office that fraudulent prescriptions were being called into pharmacies, and it was determined in August 2012 that Lamothe fraudulently called in two different prescription medications, police said.
