Ayrshire Post - - News -

A 46- year- old man was caught out try­ing to al­ter his pre­scrip­tion.

Ste­wart Wil­son of An­npit Road in Ayr ap­proached the phar­macy at Mor­risons su­per­mar­ket in Ayr on June 13, 2017 and at­tempted to ob­tain a quan­tity of med­i­ca­tion.

The phar­ma­cist be­came con­cerned as the pre­scrip­tion ap­peared to have been ad­justed.

Ayr Sher­iff Court heard on Tues­day, March 6 that the script had dif­fer­ent types of ink on it and the fre­quency sec­tion was al­tered us­ing a marker pen.

Mr Pringle said: “He re­alises the fool­ish­ness of this.

“He was drink­ing heav­ily and made poor choices that day.”

Sher­iff John Mont­gomery ques­tioned :“Why did he do it?”

The court de­ferred sen­tence for re­ports and the ac­cused to be of good be­hav­iour.
