A Salisbury couple and a teenage neighbor were arrested over the weekend after police say they forged prescriptions at three pharmacies.
According to the arrest report, Chad and Alyssia Honeycutt, 405 Heilig Ave., and neighbor Cody Ryan Bell, 414 Heilig Ave., attempted to fill a prescription for 180 oxycodone at Innes Street Drug, 112 S. Main St. on July 31. Chad Honeycutt was charged Monday; additional charges have been added.
The pharmacy called Salisbury Police after checking with the listed doctor. The doctor reported that the prescription was false and that a prescription pad had been stolen.
A vehicle was leaving the pharmacy when police arrived and tried to stop the car. Chad Honeycutt, 33, and Bell, 17, reportedly fled down Fisher Street. Officers then stopped and arrested Alyssia Honeycutt.
After an investigation, police found the three had also forged prescriptions at Moose Pharmacy in Concord and Salisbury Pharmacy.
Bell was arrested at about 4 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Bell was charged with three counts of felony obtaining prescriptions by forgery, two counts of felony trafficking heroin or opium, and felony attempt and conspiracy. He was given a $60,000 bond.
Chad Honeycutt was charged with felony obtaining prescriptions by forgery, felony traffic in drugs and misdemeanor resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer. He was given a $50,000 bond.
Alyssia Honeycutt, 30, was also given a $50,000 bond on charges of two counts of felony obtaining prescriptions by forgery and two counts of felony traffic in drugs.
All three were in jail Tuesday morning.
