Woman finishes Georgia prison term, goes straight to Rowan County jail | Crime
SALISBURY - One of the original names on Rowan County's "Most Wanted" list has now been taken into custody, just days after she finished serving a sentence in a Georgia prison.
Allison Leigh Martin, who had been a pharmacy tech at a local Eckerd's, is accused of calling in prescriptions for different people in order to get narcotics from various drug store locations. Deputies say the pills were then picked up and sold. Investigators believe Martin did this more than 50 times.
Warrants were issued in April of 2010, and she was entered into a statewide law enforcement data base.
Martin was arrested in Augusta, Georgia in September of 2010, but did have charges there as well. She was given a sentence in Georgia with the Department of Corrections, and was to be released to Rowan County authorities once her sentence there was complete.
On Wednesday Allison Martin was transported to NC from GA. She was questioned by detectives and then the warrants were served on her. Bond was set at $250,000.
