Trio Faces Fake Prescription Charges

Two men and a woman were arrested at a CVS pharmacy with what Greenwich Police say was a forged prescription for oxycodone.


Two men and a woman face charges they tried to pass a forged prescription to obtain the painkiller oxycodone from a Greenwich pharmacy, according to Greenwich Police.

According to a police report, the trio—from the Bronx, NY—were arrested just after noon Jan. 2 at the CVS, 644 W. Putnam Ave. Henry O. Iyasere, 28, of 581 Fox St., Bronx, was found in the pharmacy waiting area after submitting a prescription for 30 milligram pills of oxycodone that was determined to be forged, according to the report. An interview with the doctor revealed Iyasere was not his patient, according to the report. He was charged with second-degree forgery, interfering with an officer, criminal attempt at possession of narcotics and obtaining drugs by forgery.

Iyasere also told police two people were waiting in a car parked in the pharmacy lot.

According to the report, Tiara C. Smith, 23, of 2764 Laconia Ave., Bronx, was in the driver's seat and Smiley L. Abney, 27, of 1047 St. John Ave., Bronx, was a passenger. Police said in the report that their pair's statements to officers were determined to be false. Each was charged with interfering with an officer, conspiracy to commit second-degree forgery, criminal attempt at possession of narcotics and obtaining drugs by forgery.

Abney and Smith were released after posting $1,000 bond each. Iyasere was held in lieu of $2,000 bond. All three were scheduled to appear Jan. 9 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
