Police bust former Miss Russia in NY
She was charged Tuesday after having allegedly stolen doctor's prescription pads and faking them to buy painkillers. Police arrested the former beauty queen, Anna Malova, 38 – a doctor in her native Russia – Wednesday as she walked out of a pharmacy in New York, Fox 5 reports.
The pharmacist told Fox 5 that Malova's doctor believed she had stolen a prescription pad from him and written out fake prescriptions for addictive painkillers.
Fox 5 alleges they have uncovered that Malova was facing charges of petty theft less than three months ago.
Malova, from the Russian city of Yaroslavl, participated in quite a number of beauty contests in Russia before and after she was titled Miss Russia aged 26. A medical doctor in her homeland, she is not licensed to practice medicine in the US.
