Benzie Co Drug Arrest Alleges Woman Posed as Doctor to Get Pills

Police arrested a woman in Benzie County after they say she pretended to be a doctor.

The Traverse Narcotics Team, with help from several other local agencies, arrested her at a home on Four Seasons Road. The home is on tribal land.

Officers say Kristen Bennett was illegally calling in prescriptions to the pharmacy, posing as a doctor to the pills.

They seized several prescription drugs from the home Thursday after the FBI and a concerned pharmacist tipped them off.

Investigators say Bennett illegally obtained about 730 pills in the last two months.
