Prescription leads to arrest, not 90 pills

A forged prescription intended to garner 90 Hydrocodone pills instead led to the arrest of a 20-year-old Spokane Valley man on Thursday.

Employees at Walgreens, 2702 N. Argonne Road, suspected Robert G. Morey was handing them a forged prescription and called 911 after an employees confirmed the forgery by calling the doctor's office listed on the prescription, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office said today.

Deputy Tom Edelbrock arrived just as Morey was receiving the medication and arrested him about 3:45 p.m. He believes Morey had been offered cash to obtain the pills.

Morey was booked into jail for felony possession of a controlled substance and is due in Spokane County Superior Court this afternoon.
