Suspicions Lead To Drug Fraud Charges

An October 25th court date has been set for a Putnam County man, arrested this week on charges of drug fraud. Authorities say 29-year-old Willie Nathan Jones of Burgess School Road allegedly forged a prescription from a doctor's office in Lebanon and tried to pass it at a local pharmacy. He was arrested after the pharmacy called the doctor's office and the physician said that Jones was not a patient of his and that he had not written any prescriptions for him. The scrip that Jones allegedly tried to pass was for the painkiller Percocet, and police claim that they found two other fake prescriptions from the same doctor's office under the seat of Jones's car.
