Authorities say an associate director at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Jackson has been arrested and charged with prescription fraud.
Michael Guest, district attorney for Madison and Rankin counties, says 59-year-old Dorothy White-Taylor was arrested Tuesday and released on a $10,000 bond.
The G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center website says White-Taylor is the associate director of Patient Care Services.
Guest says Taylor has been charged in Rankin County with fraudulently obtaining 12 hydrocodone pills, but there could be more charges filed in other jurisdictions.
Guest says a condition placed on Taylor's bond is a requirement that she get treatment for substance abuse. The case could go to a grand jury in July or August.
