WILLISTON, Vt. - A Vermont man is accused of fraudulently obtaining prescription medications from CVS pharmacies in Williston, Vermont and Concord, New Hampshire.

Vermont State Police say Kyle Daley, 29, of South Burlington, Vt., pretending to be a doctor from a pain clinic in Massachusetts, called in prescriptions for a small amount of suboxone for himself. Daley would pick up and pay cash for the prescriptions. 

Police say since June 2013, Daley obtained a total of 35 prescriptions in Vermont and three in New Hampshire. A total of 128 Suboxone 8mg-2mg film strips were fraudulently obtained. 

Suboxone is a prescription medication for pain relief and for people addicted to heroin or other opiates. Police say Suboxone, a brand name for Buprenorphine, is a class III regulated drug in Vermont. 

Daley is charged with prescription fraud and was taken into custody. He was released on citation.

Daley is due in court at the end of June.
