    A woman Statesboro Police arrested Wednesday for prescription fraud is also wanted in Guyton on similar charges, according to Bulloch County Jail records.
    Dena Rae Tebeau, 41, Satinwood Road, Guyton, was charged with financial identity fraud, obtaining prescriptions by fraudulent means, first degree forgery, and illegal possession of corisopridol, oxycodone, alprazolam, and hydrocodone, said Statesboro Police Chief Stan York.
    Tebeau, whom he said was employed at the Georgia Southern University Medical Center, stole a prescription pad and forged prescriptions at the pharmacy in Harvey's Supermarket on U.S. 80 West, he said.
    Bulloch County Jail records show Tebeau has a $10,000 property bond for these charges, but there is a "hold" on her for the Guyton Police Department.
    Guyton Police have outstanding warrants on Tebeau for charges similar to those from the Statesboro Police. Records show Tebeau is wanted in Guyton on charges of first degree forgery and obtaining prescriptions by fraudulent means.
    Georgia Southern University spokesman Christian Flathman said Tebeau is listed in GSU directories as a part time employee.
    “Dena Tebeau was a part-time clerical employee at Georgia Southern University Student Health Service, he said. “Upon learning of the potential forgery, University Health Services officials immediately notified law enforcement authorities.  The University is investigating the theft.”
    York said the case remains under investigation by the Statesboro Police criminal Investigations Division as well.
