A local pharmacist who was on his toes, helped nail an out-of-town suspect wanted for allegedly forging prescriptions.
Adrienne Watson, 29, of the 8700 block of Fusilier Road, Maurice was arrested on two counts of prohibited acts for forging prescriptions for CDS Sch. II Vyvanse and Sch. IV Klonopin.
Friday, April 26, Minden Police Off. Shawn Jenkins and Ofc. Danny Turner were dispatched to a local pharmacy in reference to a possible prescription forgery.
"They made contact with the pharmacist, who indicated the suspect had forged a prescription and obtained narcotics on March 3 and had come back in to do it again," said Chief Steve Cropper. "The pharmacist had talked to the doctor who indicated Watson had stolen his prescription pad when she worked for him and that she had gone to Lafayette where she forged several prescriptions."
The chief said Watson was arrested by Lafayette Police a few weeks ago.
Watson was arrested at the scene and booked at the Minden Police Department. She was transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
According to the drug's website, Vyvanse is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Klonopin is used to control seizures in epilepsy and for the treatment of panic disorder.
