TEWKSBURY, MASS. (WHDH) - Police have arrested a Dorchester man wanted on multiple warrants after he allegedly tried to pass fake prescriptions at a pharmacy in Tewksbury on Wednesday.

J’Andre Russ, 28, was arrested on one charge of trafficking over 200 grams of a class A substance, two counts of uttering a false prescription, one count of furnishing a false identification to law enforcement, two counts of possession of a false RMV document, two counts of possession with intent to distribute a class B substance, one count of a Class E substance, one count of fugitive from justice.

Officers responding to a report of a man trying to pass a fake prescription at the CVS pharmacy on Main Street around 6 p.m. found the suspect, identified as Russ, still in the store, according to Tewksbury police.

Russ had allegedly also tried to obtain a fake prescription on December 30 at the same store, police said.

A search of his vehicle resulted in the seizure of 756 grams of codeine, two bottles of azithromycin tablets, 49 tablets of oxycodone, two bags of marijuana edibles, a fake Massachusetts ID with a photo of Russ and someone else’s name, and 21 credit cards in other people’s names.
