2 KC area residents arrested in prescription forgery case
An attempt to pick up prescription drugs last week in downtown Tonganoxie led to the arrest of two Kansas City area residents.
Tonganoxie police Jeff Brandau said he received word about 5:30 p.m. Friday from The Downtown Drugstore, 516 E. Fourth St., that a customer appeared to have picked up medication with a forged prescription and fake identification.
Brandau said Amy M. Alley, 28, Olathe, was arrested for attempting to obtain a prescription for oxycodone.
Gabriel J. Demaria, 36, Kansas City, Kan., was found in a vehicle outside the drug store. He had an outstanding warrant in Missouri for fraudulently obtaining prescription drugs.
Brandau said drug paraphernalia and methamphetamines were found during a search of the vehicle.
Alley was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by Leavenworth County Emergency Medical Service for a possible methamphetamine overdose. She was treated and released. Both were taken to Leavenworth County Jail, Brandau said.
Downtown Drugstore employees told police the woman had picked up a prescription earlier last week.
