Arkwright Court residents Michael Dodd, 27, and 25-year-old Patricia Brown.
“The pharmacist was smart and called Doctors on Duty to check, and learned no prescription had been issued by the office,” he said. “They learned it was a fake prescription.”
Instead of returning Dodd’s phone call, the pharmacist alerted Pacific Grove police and then waited for him to come attempt to pick up the narcotic painkillers. When the
Arkwright Court resident appeared at the store around 4 p.m., pharmacy staff called the police.
