Police Warn of Woman Going Door to Door Asking for Old Medication

Posted Thursday, July 12, 2012 --- 1:30 p.m.

Incident Report from the Madison Police Department:

Incident Type: Suspicious Person

Incident Date: 06/22/2012 - 11:04 AM

Address: Valley Stream Dr.

Suspect(s): Female, white, early 20's, long golden blonde hair worn in a ponytail, petite build, wearing glasses, casual t-shirt, and jeans.

Victim: Female, age 62, Madison

Details: A west side woman contacted the MPD last month after a young woman came to her door claiming to be working for Advanced Pain Management on Schroeder Ct. It was about 8:40 p.m., on June 21st, and she said she was collecting old medications no longer needed by citizens.

The 62-year old Valley Stream Dr. resident told the caller that she only knew people could drop medications at the police department. The younger woman did not seem to know anything about that system, but claimed this was a service being offered by Advanced Pain Management. The resident did not feel comfortable with the solicitor and gave her nothing.

That was good since Advanced Pain Management has no such collection program. For those looking to get rid of old medications there is information available on the Safe Communities website about our local MedDrop program: http://www.safercommunity.net/MedDrop/index.html
