Four individuals were arrested Monday afternoon on Country Club Lane on multiple forgery charges after they attempted to fill a fake prescription, according to Hopkinsville police reports.
The reports state that around 1:10 p.m. Monday, Anthony Standifer, 24, Glenwood, Illinois, and Iyanna Green, 22, Posen, Illinois, attempted to obtain a forged prescription that they allegedly called in to Tom's Family Pharmacy on Country Club Lane, while two other individuals waited in a car.
However, at that time, officers arrived to the pharmacy. The front seat passenger, Travie Mitchell, 25, Mesa, Arizona, after seeing officers, got back into the vehicle that was being driven by James Hampton, Jr., 25, Crete, Illinois.
Green also got back into the vehicle before Hampton drove away, leaving Standifer in the parking lot of the pharmacy. Officers confronted Standifer and arrested him for his alleged involvement in the forgery. During his arrest, Standifer allegedly admitted to officers that he was trying to obtain the fake prescription.
The vehicle the rest of them drove away in was found just down the road and was confronted by police. Officers arrested the other three individuals and then searched the vehicle.
The search revealed a computer, printer, blank checks, forged prescriptions, a forged U.S. Treasury check and several fake checks, according to the reports.
All four were charged with attempting to obtain controlled substance by false or forged statements, first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and possession of a forgery device.
Green had additional charges of possession of a forgery device and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, the reports added.
