A Shippenville man was jailed last week after his arraignment on drug and forgery charges in a case in which police say a doctor alerted them to a possible prescription medication fraud.
Clarion Borough Police say 38 year-old Ryan Wise tried to add 300 oxycodone pills to a doctor’s prescription for another medication. A Clarion pharmacy refused to fill the order.
Wise was charged with the possession of a controlled substance through misrepresentation, forgery, intent to possess a controlled substance that was not prescribed, and filing a fraudulent insurance claim.
After his arraignment, Wise was lodged in the Clarion County Jail with bail set at $100,000.
