Man Caught Passing Altered Prescription

Suspect returns to pick up pills at the same time police come to investigate fake prescription.

A 44-year-old Racine man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to pass a forged prescription at a Caledonia pharmacy.

William L. Dehne was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Tuesday with one count of attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

At 12:22 p.m. Monday, police officers were called to after Dehne dropped off a prescription for Percocet and a pharmacist discovered the date had been altered on the form. While speaking with the officer, Dehne showed up to pick up the prescription and he was arrested.

He denied knowing the prescription was altered and refused to answer questions without a lawyer present. After dropping him off at Racine County Jail, the officer went back to get the paperwork from the pharmacist and found Dehne had parked his car in the handicapped parking spot and the car was left in the spot.

He’s currently being held in jail on a $2,000 signature bond.
