Man accused of passing forged meth prescription

QUINCY — A western Illinois man has been ordered to stand trial on charges that he tried to fill a forged prescription for methamphetamine at a pharmacy.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports 33-year-old Stanley Nowacki is charged with forgery and unauthorized possession of prescription forms.

Authorities on Wednesday alleged that the Quincy man tried to fill the bogus prescription Feb. 21 at a CVS pharmacy in his hometown.

Investigators say the prescription for Desoxyn was forged with a Quincy doctor's name. Desoxyn is a trade name for prescription meth. CVS technicians grew suspicious after noting the wrong font was used on the customer's prescription form, and the word "license" was misspelled.

Nowacki has pleaded not guilty and is tentatively scheduled for trial in August.
