Two arrested after trying to use a fake prescription to buy drugs
LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WACH) – Two people are now behind bars after they tried to use a forged prescription to get painkillers, according to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
Thirty-one-year-old Tevin Lewis and 30-year-old Nykia Oggs were arrested at the Walgreen’s on South Lake Dr. Friday night.
The two are charged with falsely obtaining prescription drugs for trying to fill a forged prescription for 90 oxycodone pills at the store, according to the department.
“Lewis is also charged with possession of a Schedule II narcotic, possession of contraband and possession of a prescription pad,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Detention officers found marijuana, oxycodone pills and fraudulent prescription slips on his person when he was booked in to the detention center.”
Koon said Oggs was arrested on a bench warrant for failing to appear in General Sessions Court on a drug-related charge. She is also charged with possession of a Schedule II narcotic, possession of a prescription pad and identity theft, according to arrest warrants.
Lewis and Oggs are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
