LOPATCONG TWP., N.J. -

Two N.J. women are facing charges after they allegedly tried to forge a Xanax prescription.

Lopatcong Twp. police were called to the Phillipsburg Pharmacy at 96 Baltimore St. in Phillipsburg for a report of two women who tried to fill a fraudulent prescription around midnight Saturday.

The women were identified as 36-year-old Marteka Fleming of S. 10th Street, and 30-year-old Qyneesha Myers of Washington St., both of Newark, N.J.

Both were located later, sitting in a vehicle in front of the Rite Aid pharmacy at 755 Memorial Pkwy., where they were taken into custody.

An investigation revealed that Fleming forged the prescription and gave it to Myers to fill at the Phillipsburg Pharmacy, where they were turned away, according to police.

They drove to Rite Aid where township police located them.

Both women were charged with forgery.
