Cheyenne Morgan

An Inverness woman was arrested on a Marion County warrant and now faces 19 charges alleging she obtained a controlled substance totaling nearly 900 oxycodone pills in three months.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, the investigating deputy reported that Cheyenne Morgan, 36, of Inverness filled out prescriptions from a doctor’s office in Dunnellon where she worked and took them to the Winn-Dixie pharmacy in Dunnellon to get them filled.

According to arrest documents, the Marion County investigating deputy reported Morgan obtained 897 oxycodone pills with the fraudulent prescriptions between October 2018 and December 2018. The deputy alleges that the written prescriptions showed her handwriting and not the doctor who she worked for at the Dunnellon clinic.

According to the arrest documents, on March 26, Morgan spoke with the Marion County investigating deputy when he came to her Inverness home and first said she did not fill out the prescriptions, but later said she did fill out some. A short time later Morgan refused to speak anymore with the deputy.

Investigating deputies showed several photos to the pharmacy technician at Winn-Dixie. The photos included one of Morgan. The technician identified Morgan as the person who brought in the prescriptions, according to arrest documents.

She was arrested March 30 by Citrus County Sheriff’s Office deputies on a Marion County warrant.
