Two have been arrested in connection with a previously reported prescription fraud.

On Oct. 23 Travis Ryan Young, 28, attempted to fill a prescription for oxycodone at the Kmart pharmacy. The pharmacist determined the prescription was a fraud and notified police. However, Young did not return to pick up the prescription.
