A Dothan man who works as an EMT faces eight felony drug charges involving prescription drug fraud.

Dothan Police Lt. Mark Nelms, the supervisor over the department’s narcotics unit, confirmed police investigators recently arrested Robert Patrick Fioramonti, 29, of Magnolia Ridge Place, and charged him with seven felony counts of drug possession by fraud and single felony count of attempted unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

Nelms said the charges stemmed from Fioramonti getting a prescription, and then photocopying it to get it filled seven more times.

Court records show police charged Fioramonti with felony attempted unlawful possession of a controlled substance for submitting a prescription for lortab at Mike’s Pharmacy that had already been filled at another pharmacy on Aug. 29.

Records show the drug possession by fraud charges involved the following allegations:

- Obtained lortab, which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Publix Pharmacy on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Winn-Dixie Pharmacy on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Doctors Center Pharmacy on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Circle Pharmacy on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Scott-Cook Pharmacy on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Northcutt Drug Company on Aug. 23.

- Obtained lortab which contains hydrocodone, by misrepresentation or fraud from the Northside Wal-Mart on Aug. 23.

Records show Fioramonti has worked as an EMT for eight years.

Fioramonti was released from custody at the Houston County Jail after he posted bail totaling $18,500.

Fioramonti faces one to 10 years in prison if convicted of the class C felony crime of attempted unlawful possession of a controlled substance, and one to five years in prison if he’s convicted of each of the class D felony drug possession by fraud charges.
