SANATOGA PA – An area resident faces an upcoming preliminary hearing on allegations that he forged a medication prescription and then sought to have it filled at a pharmacy in Sanatoga, Lower Pottsgrove police announced Friday (Jan. 4, 2012).
Joshua Wayne Holland, 27, of Boyertown, was arrested and charged with forgery, violating the Pharmacy Act, and driving under suspension after police Sgt. Timothy Walters alleged he passed a forged prescription Sunday (Dec. 30, 2012) at CVS Pharmacy, 1833 E. High St.
