Benjamin Jacob Coleman Arrested After Forging Prescriptions For Hundreds Of Oxycodone Pills, Arrested Because “Percocet” And The Number “Twenty” Were Spelled Wrong | September 2
Atlantis: A pair of Florida men are being held after allegedly forging prescriptions for hundreds of Oxycodone pills. The men Benjamin Jacob Coleman and Davidson Charles Joseph are facing numerous charges.
According to reports, the fraudulent prescriptions were presented at Atlantis Pharmacy at John F. Kennedy Drive and Congress Avenue and Unity Pharmacy on Lake Worth Road near Jog Road in Greenacres between January and April.
Police began investigating after the owner of the Atlantis Pharmacy and informed them that Coleman and Joseph had turned in seven prescriptions for 120 Percocet tablets each.
The words “Percocet” - a brand name for oxycodone - and “twenty” were misspelled on each of the prescriptions.
The prescriptions showed the signature of a suburban Delray Beach doctor, who told investigators that neither Coleman nor Joseph had ever been his patients.
The men are facing trafficking charge because the weight of 120 Percocet pills is 46.2 grams. Possession of more than 4 grams of oxycodone is automatically elevated to a trafficking charge.
Benjamin Jacob Coleman, 38, of Lake Park and Davidson Charles Joseph, 27, of West Palm Beach are facing numerous drug trafficking and fraud charges.
