LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Sex and money: police say those were the motivations for a man who walked into a local Kroger store and presented employees with a forged prescription.
It happened at the Kroger on Dixie Hwy., just north of Blanton Lane.
Louisville Metro Police say 56-year-old Tyrone Page presented store employees with a prescription, "that he knew to be fraudulent."
Police say the prescription was written by a "girl on the street," but Page didn't know her name.
When confronted about the forged prescription, police say Page admitted he knew it was fraudulent. Page also allegedly told them that once he got the prescription, he was going to give it back to the unknown girl in exchange for "sex and money."
Upon searching Page, police allegedly found a bag of marijuana.
He was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and a prescription drug charge.
