Jasonville Man Charged Taking Wife's Medication

Last updated on Saturday, July 27, 2013

(JASONVILLE) - 19-year-old Joshua David Hollifield was charged with possession of a controlled substance after police say he filed his wife’s perscription but took some of the pills out of the bottle.

According to the Greene County Daily World, Hollifield went to a pharmacy earlier this month to pick up prescription medication for his wife but before he took the medication to his wife he removed several pills from the bottle.

His wife called police to report the missing pills.

Hollifield told police he took the pills so he could sell them. But then he later changed his story and told police he took some of the medication himself and threw the rest out of his car window.

According to a probable cause affidavit, there were only 12 pills left out of 30 that should have been in a bottle of phentermine and only 80 left out of 90 that should have been in a bottle of alprazolam.

Hollifield was arrested July 18 and posted a $400 cash bond and was released. He appeared in court on Wednesday where he was charged with illegal possession of a schedule I, II, III or IV controlled substance, a class D felony.
