Molly Tiry, 39, was charged in Chippewa County on Tuesday.

According the criminal complaint, Tiry gave false identities to officials at St. Joseph's Hospital in Chippewa Falls. Over six visits, starting in October 2016, hospital records show Tiry ran up bills totaling $18,383.87, including prescriptions for Oxycodone and Hydrocodone. When interviewed by police, Tiry allegedly admitted she gave the false names because she was addicted to pain medication.
