VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- Police arrested a woman following an incident where she obtained prescription drugs fraudulently by giving a false identity.

Maura Eddiani was arrested after this incident took place Dec. 13, 2016.

While attempting to get prescription drugs using a fake identity, Eddiani identified herself as a police officer verbally as a way to enhance her "character standing."

She was not wearing a uniform at the time, but only impersonated an officer to make herself seem more reliable, according to authorities.

Eddiani was charged with obtaining drugs by fraud and impersonating a police officer.
