Police Say Man Picked Up Fake Prescription At Pharmacy

CREATED May 2, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man was arrested after police said he picked up a fraudulent prescription at a local Walgreens.

Kendrick F. Holden, age 22, was charged with forgery and obtaining legend drug by fraud.

A police affidavit said pharmacist at the Walgreens at the 600 block of S. Gallatin Pike called to report a man who had picked up a prescription that was fraudulent. The pharmacist told police they received the prescription by phone and the doctor’s office they called to verify the prescription said it was fake.

Officers spotted Holden exiting the store with the prescription and took him into custody.

During an interview, Holden told police a guy named "Money" often calls him and gives him the name of the patient and the prescription to be picked up. When he delivers the prescription, he said he got paid.

It was unclear how often Holden had done something similar or what type of medication he was picking up.

Holden’s bond was set at $10,000.
