DeShawn T. Holman, 24, of Philadelphia, has been charged with Forgery, Fraudulent Prescriptions and Criminal Attempt after Radnor Police arrested him while he was trying to get a fraudulent prescription filled at CVS in Wayne on Aug. 31.
According to police, Holman had thrice before tried to get fraudulent prescriptions filled at the pharmacy — once successfully — before he came back that evening. On July 15 he requested a prescription for 120 Oxycodone despite the fact that the pharmacist was unable to contact the doctor who supposedly wrote the prescription. An hour after he left, the doctor called CVS to confirm that the prescription was fraudulent, according to the police report.
On Aug. 12 Holman returned to the CVS to get another prescription filled, but left while waiting for the narcotics. At some point during the week of Aug. 24 police say Holman returned and tried to submit a third prescription; the pharmacist told him it would take four days.
On Aug. 31, the day of the arrest, police say that Holman returned with a fourth prescription, which was deemed fraudulent. Police took Holman into custody, and he was eventually transported to Delaware County Prison.
