A Holbrook woman was arrested Thursday after Nassau County detectives said she tried to procure Oxycodone pills using a forged prescription, according to a police news release.

Krystyna Barna, 28, of 182 Union Ave., was arrested Jan. 16 at the Suffolk County District Court in Central Islip. She had been appearing in court in an unrelated case when Nassau Narcotics and Vice Bureau detectives slapped the cuffs on her.

Her arrest for second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument is related to an incident that occurred last May, police said Thursday evening. Investigators allege Barna altered an Oxycodone prescription and tried to pass it off at Charlie’s Family Pharmacy on Merrick Road in Seaford.

Police did not say if she was provided with any pills or what led detectives to arrest her almost eight months after the initial incident.

Barna is scheduled to face a judge Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
