NJ Man Faces Forged Prescription Charges

Suspect is charged with case involving use of forged prescription.

A Livingston, NJ man has been arrested by Greenwich Police who obtained an arrest warrant charging him forging a prescription and using it to buy drugs from a Riverside pharmacy.

Sean Anthony Mack, 34, was arrested Feb. 23 on felony charges of second-degree forgery, obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and illegal possession of a controlled substance. Mack is accused of forging the script and using it to obtain unidentified drugs from the CVS pharmacy, 1239 E. Putnam Ave., in the Riverside section of Greenwich on Sept. 18, 2011.

"They didn't realize it at the time, it was a fraudulent prescription," said Greenwich Police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray. "It was a trail of paperwork of the incident and investigation" that lead to the arrest.

Mack was brought to state Superior Court in Stamford where Greenwich Police charged him. His bond was set at $100,000 and he is scheduled to return there March 22.

Mack has been in custody since his arrest by the Glastonbury Police Department in connection with a Nov. 6, 2011 incident in which he was charged with conspiracy to committe the use of a forged prescription, conspiracy to commit second-degree forgery, illegal use of a forged prescription, second-degree forgery, conspiracy to possess narcotics and conspiracy to possess narcotics with intent to sell, according to the Connecticut Judicial Department records. He also was charged by Glastonbury on Dec. 16, 2011 with possession of a controlled substance. Bond in those cases is set at $220,000, according to the court records.
