Woman wearing Mickey Mouse scrubs accused of cough syrup forgery

A woman was arrested after pharmacy employees recognized her and remembered her Mickey Mouse scrubs. She’s being accused of forging at least 20 prescriptions for narcotic cough syrup with the intent of selling it, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Saturday afternoon just after 1:30 p.m. Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Walgreens Pharmacy at 13470 NW Cornell Rd. concerning a forged prescription.

The Sheriff’s Deputy learned that a woman was in the pharmacy at about 11:45 a.m. and picked up a prescription for Phenergan with Codeine cough syrup using a forged prescription. The cough syrup is classified as a DEA schedule-II drug which is a very powerful narcotic only available by prescription. 

The Sheriff’s Deputy was told the pharmacy had sent a flyer to all other Walgreen’s warning about the woman.

There was information that the same woman, dressed in Mickey Mouse cartoon character scrubs, was traveling from pharmacy to pharmacy picking up called-in prescriptions of the same cough syrup.

The prescriptions were called in from a person claiming to be from various doctor’s offices providing the correct doctor information with fake patient names. The woman would then go to the pharmacy and pick the cough syrup up by paying cash. 

Prior to the Sheriff’s Deputy leaving the Walgreens on NW Cornell Road, he received information that a Walgreens in Gresham recognized a woman from the description from the flyer. The pharmacy called Gresham Police who arrested Sirenna Guice, 20, from Sacramento and a man that was driving her around. 

The Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy went to the Gresham Police Department and contacted Guice. The Westside Interagency Narcotics (WIN) Team also assisted with the investigation.

Investigators recovered over 20 bottles of the cough syrup from the vehicle Ms. Guice was using and her hotel room.

The street value of the seized cough syrup sold by the ounce is estimated to be in excess of $15,000. Investigators believe this incident is possibly part of a larger scale operation. 

Sheriff’s Deputies have linked Ms. Guice to crimes at nine pharmacies in Portland, Beaverton, Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview, and Washington County. 

At about 9:00 p.m. last night, Sirenna Lynn Guice was arrested and later lodged in the Washington County Jail where she was charged with 11 counts of possession of a controlled substance, 11 counts of distribution of a controlled substance, 11 counts of second degree forgery, 11 counts of prescription fraud, and one count of aggravated identity theft.

She is held on $1,000,000 bail. 

The man was questioned and later released.
