A Holbrook woman was arrested Thursday on charges she tried to get oxycodone from a Seaford pharmacy with an altered prescription, Nassau police said.

Krystyna Barna, 28, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument related to an incident that occurred in May, police said.

Police said Barna presented the prescription for oxycodone to a pharmacist at Charlie's Family Pharmacy on Merrick Road in Seaford just before 10 a.m. on May 16. A subsequent investigation led to Barna being arrested at First District Court in Central Islip, where she was appearing on other charges, on Thursday.
