A Fort Knox woman faces up to five years in prison after she was arrested Wednesday and charged with stealing another person’s identity for the purpose of obtaining prescription drugs.

Mykel Sullivan, 24, was charged with one count of theft of identity of another without consent and issuing false statements for a prescription order.

According to an arrest warrant, Sullivan committed the offenses between Nov. 2 and Jan. 21 in Hardin County.

A woman contacted Radcliff Police Department on Jan. 24 and reported someone used her identity to obtain prescription medication. The woman said she believed Sullivan obtained her Social Security card and military ID while Sullivan lived with her in October 2013.

During an investigation, it was determined Sullivan had used the woman’s information to obtain eight prescriptions, including two for a controlled substance, according to the warrant.

During a Feb. 3 interview with investigators, Sullivan admitted to using the woman’s information to obtain prescriptions and completed a written statement confirming the admission.

She is scheduled to appear in Hardin District Court at 9 a.m. Feb. 21. She remained lodged Thursday afternoon in Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 cash bond.
