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."
