BC Man Sentenced for Forging Oxycontin Prescriptions
52-year-old Timothy Schubert from Kamloops BC appeared in custody at Swift Current Provincial court on Monday for double doctoring prescriptions. He plead guilty to entering the local Pharmasave with a forge prescription for 180 tablets of 80 mgs of oxycontin. The staff at Pharmasave had already received a tip that Schubert would be coming because another pharmacy was unable to fill the large quantity and had recommended he try there. Upon his arrival the Pharmacist called RCMP and arrested Schubert and co-accused Robert Carmount. Carmount admitted to traveling from BC with three other males to several cities with prescriptions for oxycontin to feed their addictions and for resale. Carmount will be back in Swift Current provincial court on Wednesday for sentencing.
Schubert received a sentence of 6 months incarceration.
