34 year old Jafet "Jay" Vallejo was arrested on charges of forgery and fraudulently obtaining a controlled substance.
Vallejo, an assistant to Doctor George Williams, is accused of taking a forged prescription for 100 tablets of Adderall, a brand-name pyschostimulant medication considered to have high abuse potential, to the Wal-Mart pharmacy.
The pharmacist flagged the prescription after Vallejo asked if the dosage could be raised. The pharmacist confirmed with Dr. Williams that the prescription was forged and notified the Deming Police Department. Vallejo invoked his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. Chief Michael Carillo said both charges are fourth-degree felonies.
