SARATOGA SPRINGS -- A Guilderland woman used access to an online prescription program at her workplace to illegally fill out prescriptions for herself and others, state police said.

Meghann Blain, 37, was arrested Saturday on two counts each of computer trespass and falsifying business records, both felonies, as well as two felony counts of fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, state police said.

Blain worked at a doctor's office and secretly used access to the office's prescription system to send narcotic prescriptions, according to Trooper Kerra M. Burns. The computer trespass count relates to accessing the computer system without authorization, and the falsifying count is related to sending in the prescriptions, Burns said.

One of the prescriptions she is accused of sending involved a minor, resulting in a misdemeanor child endangerment charge, Burns said.

Blain was arraigned and ordered held on $2,500 bail.
