DL woman charged with altering prescription for pain killer

Sonja Inez Leitheiser, 47, of 12392 270th Ave., Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony fifth-degree controlled substance crime.

According to court records, on Oct. 18, she allegedly altered a prescription for the pain-killer Hydrocodone to allow for one refill.

A pharmacist at Seip Drug in Detroit Lakes allegedly called the nurse practitioner who wrote the prescription and found that it did not include refills.

On Tuesday, District Judge Joe Evans issued a summons for Leithesier to appear in court Dec. 8.
