RALEIGH, N.C. — A Holly Springs woman is accused of drug trafficking, possession and fraud after authorities say she forged prescriptions to obtain oxycodone from an Apex drug store.

Dinah S. Kelly, 55, of 108 Arbor Wynds Court, is charged with 13 counts of fraud/forgery. Arrest warrants say that she obtained hundreds of oxycodone pills from Walgreens, 511 W. Williams St., by forging the signature of Dr. Rowena Marino, of the Hope Spine and Rehabilitation Clinic. The offenses occurred from March to November last year.

Kelly is also charged with 13 counts of trafficking heroin/opium.

She was being held at the Wake County jail under a $1 million bond Thursday afternoon.
