Feds arrest Perry county pharmacist on drug charge

Posted By on Thu, Jan 29, 2015 at 6:11 AM

The U.S. attorney's office in Little Rock has announced the arrest of Christopher Watson, a pharmacist in Perryville, for distributing  narcotics such as Hydroodone and Xanax without a legal prescription.

As part of the investigation, undercover agents presented Watson with a forged prescription, according to a news release.

A DEA agent, working in an undercover capacity, presented a fabricated prescription to Mr. Watson at the Perry County Food and Drug store pharmacy. Mr. Watson reviewed the prescription and acknowledged that it was a forged prescription by informing the undercover agent to “work on” the official DEA registration number, and giving him specific instructions of how to make the prescription look like a valid prescription. Mr. Watson filled the fabricated prescription with (120) Hydrocodone tablets and (60) Alprazolam (Xanax) tablets.

The news release said the Perry County Food and Drug permit to dispense controlled drugs was suspended.
