TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa nurse and receptionist were arrested. They are being accused of trading prescription drugs for meth.

Investigators say they were tipped off to this situation back in September. The Office of the Oklahoma Attorney General says the nurse, 47-year-old Patsy Wiseman, prescribed Xanax to an undercover officer in exchange for meth.

Investigators say Wiseman prescribed the drug, even after the officer told her they had no medical need for it.

That officer also said that he planned to turn around and sell it.

Detectives say Wiseman told the undercover officer to give the meth to her receptionist, 41-year-old Amanda Emhoolah.

The Attorney Generals Office says this happened at Advanced Health and Wellness near 51st and Sheridan. Officials say they found it was common practice for Wiseman and Emhoolah.

Investigators say a search of the office and Wiseman's home turned up more drugs, including meth.

Wiseman and her receptionist are both charged with multiple crimes.

They could go to prison if convicted.
