WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) — Police in Vermont say a South Burlington man called pharmacies here and in New Hampshire and identified himself as a doctor to get prescriptions filled for a pain reliever.

Since June 2013, police say 29-year-old Kyle Daley had been calling pharmacies, saying he was a doctor at a pain clinic in Massachusetts and getting prescriptions for Suboxone.

Suboxone is also used to treat addiction to heroin and other opiates.

Police say Daley would call in prescriptions for small amounts of the drug then pick them up and pay cash. They say he obtained 35 prescriptions in Vermont and three in Concord, N.H.

Daley was charged with prescription fraud, a violation, and released. He’s due back in court on June 24. A phone number could not be found for him.
