A BENCH warrant was issued for the arrest of Louise Farrell, Beech Road, Bray, after handed a fake prescription for painkillers to a Dun Laoghaire chemist.
Farrell ran off when the pharmacist raised concerns about the excessive dosage, it emerged at Dun Laoghaire District Court last week.
The 23-year-old was identified on CCTV as the woman in Bradley’s Pharmacy, Dun Laoghaire last May.
Farrell was found guilty in her absence to possession of a forged prescription. The judge issued a bench warrant for sentencing.
