An alert pharmacist at Publix at Mulberry Grove in The Villages caught a fraudulent prescription this past weekend.

The fraudulent prescription had been dropped off at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to an incident report from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

The pharmacist said she had called the doctor’s office and was told the prescription was bogus.


  1. being “alert” is great, but mite have acted premature, should have waited till person arrived to pick up rx, (hopefully with a cop nearby), then call doctor… could have been a person from the doctor’s staff, but now we’ll never know

  2. What was it for? Who was it for? This article is really just a couple of statements, leaving nothing but questions in the readers minds. Better to have left it out until more information was gathered.
