McARTHUR — A man and a woman face multiple charges after an allegedly fictitious prescription was called into Shriver’s Pharmacy, the McArthur Police Department reported.
On Feb. 6, Shriver’s Pharmacy contacted the police department to report a possible fictitious prescription being called into their pharmacy. The pharmacist stated that a subject claiming to be a doctor called them and requested a prescription for a controlled substance to be filled and given to a patient at a later date.
On Feb. 7, 2020 two subjects arrived at the pharmacy to allegedly obtain the fictitious prescription. An officer arrived and was able to detain and interview two people about the incident.
Marcellus Guyton, 27, and Lori Smith, 31, both of Chicago, Illinois, were arrested and later transported to the Southeast Ohio Regional Jail in Nelsonville.
During a search of the vehicle a bottle of liquid (a schedule 5 controlled substance) was allegedly found in the vehicle, along with a prescription bottle with pills.
Both items allegedly had the prescription labels removed from the containers.
Guyton and Smith are being charged with deception to obtain a dangerous drug, a felony; illegal processing of a prescription drug document, a felony; and possession of a controlled substance, a felony.
