ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police say an Albuquerque woman stole a prescription notepad from her boss so her brother could get pain killers.

Brienna Prudencio, 22 years old, has been arrested for ransacking her boss’s office at ABQ Injury Clinic.

Employees say they saw her go into his office with a cardboard box, load up things like his iPad and the prescription notepad, then left.
Prudencio never came back to work.

APD says then Prudencio’s brother tried to get a fake prescription for OxyContin filled.

A judge set her at $500 cash only bond.
