On Friday, June 17th, the Ross County Grand Jury returned 18 of their 19 cases, with only two open.
According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on May 5th a pharmacist in Knisely Pharamacy on Western Avenue noticed a prescription for a schedule-5 antihistamine was on the wrong color paper.
A call to Adena urgent care revealed that they had no patient by that name, and the signing doctor was not on duty that day.
31-year-old Samantha C. Murphy of Columbus could get up to a year and a $2,500 fine if convicted for "illegal processing of drug documents."
According to the Ross County Prosecutor's Office, on April 26th a Chillicothe Police officer on patrol noticed a person familiar to the department in the parking lot of Dairy Queen on North Bridge Street.
A police dog alerted to the vehicle after 43-year-old Reginald Ware of Bow Circle in Ross County was pulled over after making a traffic violation. When an officer tried to obtain a plastic bag causing a large bulge in his mouth, Ware tried to escape.
He later spit it out in the Law Enforcement Center when he was apparently getting sick from its contents during his struggles. It tested positive for cocaine.
Ware could get up to five years and a $10,000 fine for tampering with evidence. And, another drug case is forthcoming for him.
