An engaged couple was arrested at their Manhattan home on Thursday morning on prescription fraud charges.
The NYPD says Eric Schein, a physician's assistant, and Perri Weissman, an attorney, had obtained more than 13,000 Percocet pills with fraudulent prescriptions.
They say the Upper East Side couple had gone to pharmacies with 163 fake prescriptions for the narcotic painkiller.
The arrests came after a six-month investigation.
Prosecutors say that Schein had worked as a physician's assistant, first at Mount Sinai Medical School in Manhattan and later at a family practitioner's office in Inwood. They say that Weissman did legal work for Duane Reade/Walgreens.
Investigators say that Schein had taken prescription pads and wrote out prescriptions to himself by forging doctor's names.
They say Schein also wrote prescriptions to Weissman under his own name.
The pair faces 66 charges, including conspiracy, criminal sale of a prescription and drug charges.
