Two Clinton residents, with their only known address listed as a local motel, were taken into custody by police over the weekend, charged with trying to forge prescriptions at a local pharmacy.
According to Police Chief Jay Tilley, it was the efforts of a “sharp CVS crew” who precipitated the investigation which led to the eventual arrest of Terrance Jarod Kerr, 20, of Room 14, Gracie’s Motel, and Rashida Harrington Davis, 38, of Room 14, Gracie’s Motel.
The pair were charged with one count each of felony attempting to obtain a controlled substance by forgery/fraud, a felony.
Tilley said his officers received a complaint in early February about someone trying to pass a forged prescription.
“We began our investigation after the CVS folks notified us of the attempt, and that led us to take out warrants for the two,” Tilley said.
Late Friday afternoon, the pair were spotted traveling along Sunset Avenue and were stopped by a police officer.
Kerr was jailed under a $20,000 secured bond and has since been released. He is expected to make his first appearance in District Court next week
Parker was jailed under two separate bonds — $20,000 for the Clinton warrant and another $25,000 for a child abuse warrant issued in Guilford County. She remained in the Sampson Detention Center Monday afternoon and is scheduled for her first appearance on the Sampson County charge March 14.
