Teen charged with forgery
Jeremy N. Brown, 17, of the 24000 block of Cropland Drive, Plainfield, was arrested by Joliet police and booked into the Will County jail on a felony forgery charge.
Joliet Police Lt. Brian Dupuis said Brown received a prescription for a nasal spray during a Sept. 30 visit to Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center, but when he took the prescription to be filled at a Walgreens store on Ingalls Avenue, it contained a second prescription for the painkiller Norco.
Dupuis said the pharmacist believed the prescription to be a fake and contacted police. After the pharmacist identified Brown in a photo lineup, police arrested the teen at his Plainfield home. In an interview, Brown admitted to writing the phony prescription, Dupuis said.
Bond information for Brown was not available Wednesday.
