Police say duo passed fraudulent prescriptions off to Ontario County pharmacies

Police say a 21-year-old Brooklyn resident was arrested on felony charges in Geneva after an investigation into fraudulent prescriptions being passed to area pharmacies.

They say it was part of a scheme between two individuals – one of which portrayed themselves as a doctor – to obtain Promethazine with Codeine, a narcotic drug.

Kahlil Johnson, 21, was charged with first-degree criminal impersonation. It’s a Class E felony, and additional charges are pending, according to police.

Johnson was held $5,000 bail.
