Kyle woman accused of posing as doctor to get prescription medication

TRAVIS COUNTY - A woman has been accused of posing as a Baylor Scott & White Health doctor in order to get prescription drugs, police said. 

The woman, identified in court documents as Katherine Lee Boyles, 37, allegedly would enter pharmacies wearing a large sun hat, sunglasses, a wig, and spoke with a false British accent. Police said Boyles went by a pair of false names and had fraudulent paper drivers licenses for her aliases.

Police allege Boyles also identified herself as a Bee Cave doctor and used the doctor's DEA number to call in for fraudulent prescriptions from pharmacies at H-E-B, CVS, Walmart and Randall's, police said.

According to the affidavit, Boyles had filled and attempted to fill prescriptions for Celexa and the schedule IV controlled substance Zolpidem Tartrate - commonly referred to as Ambien - since March 2017. When questioned, police said Boyles told officers she committed fraud in order to have more medication for her seizures.

Boyles has been charged for obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and tampering with government records. Her bond has been set at $40,000.

Online records do not list her in the Travis County Jail as of 2 p.m. Tuesday.
