Fraud Arrest

On 9/15/17 at approximately 5:02 pm Rafael Hernandez, age 54 of Hartford, CT. was taken into custody at the Newington Police Dept. on an active arrest warrant. Hernandez was transported to the Southington PD where he was processed and charged with two (2) counts of Forgery 2nd Degree and two (2) counts of Obtaining Drugs Illegally. Hernandez was released on $5,000.00 N/S bond and given a court appearance date of 9/25/17 at Bristol Superior Court.

Details: The warrant stems from an investigation of a Fraudulent Prescription at the Walgreen’s Pharmacy located at 359 Main ST. that was reported on 05/19/17. The warrant alleges that on 03/29/17 Hernandez presented two (2) fraudulent prescriptions (1 for Oxycodone and 1 for Ativan) that were filled in the pharmacy. The fraudulent prescriptions were discovered when Walgreens checked their in house records after Hernandez was arrested in Wethersfield for allegedly passing fraudulent prescriptions at the Walgreens. During the investigation, contact was made with the Physician whose name appeared on the prescription and they confirmed that the prescriptions in question were not prescribed to Hernandez and in fact fraudulent.
