ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri's top law enforcer is pressing what he says is a new consumer fraud action against Walgreen Co. over the nation's biggest pharmacy chain's more than 1,000 alleged violations of an existing court order.

Attorney General Chris Koster planned to announce details during a news conference Tuesday morning in St. Louis.

Koster sued the Chicago-based retailer in 2013, accusing it of overcharging customers and using deceptive advertising and pricing schemes.

Koster says that undercover Missouri investigation began after many consumers complained that display tag prices didn't match up with what they paid at checkout.

Walgreen settled that matter in June of last year. The deal included having an independent auditor monitor at the company's Missouri stores for three years.
