A local couple allegedly used fraudulent means to get thousands of prescription pain pills.

"We don't know what happens behind closed doors," says neighbor Gail Etchie.

Medford Police arrested Medical Office Manager Jodi Setzer for allegedly using her employers information to get prescriptions for nearly 8,000 Vicoden pills.
"Sometimes when people are tempted and in desperate times, people will do desperate things," continues Etchie.  

Setzer lives in an affluent Central Point neighborhood. Her Facebook page shows picture after picture of what appears to be a comfortable life.

Her neighbor Gail Etchie did not express shock at the allegations..."I came from a larger city, and prescription drug use is rampant."

Setzer is charged with identity theft, aggravated theft and tampering with drug records. Her husband, Jason, is also cited with  four counts of aggravated I.D. theft.

"Having it happen here, while I'm not surprised, I'm disappointed," says Etchie, "... but I can only worry about what happens behind my closed doors."

At this time officials won't say if the the pills were used for recreational use or sold.

Jason Setzer was released. Jodi Setzer is also out of jail after posting 70,000 dollars bail just this afternoon.
