A man by the name of Eric Jarvis was arrested in Rutherford County after allegedly being caught with a forged prescription. Jarvis allegedly sent a friend into a South Rutherford Boulevard Pharmacy in an attempt to gain pain killers with what was described as a fraudulent prescription. The pharmacist said that prior to someone entering the pharmacy to retrieve the drugs; he received a call that was supposedly from a doctor’s office in Franklin. The doctor was not even around when the order was called in to the pharmacy. The report stated, “It was determined that he was not working at the time the prescription was called in.” Officers located Jarvis in the parking lot of the Walmart Pharmacy and placed him in cuffs.

Arrested with Jarvis and charged with two counts of prescription fraud was Paul Andrew Hall.

33-year old Jarvis lives in Murfreesboro and reports indicate this is not his first run in with the law facing similar charges.  In 2008 Jarvis was charged by Smithville Police after using a fake name to receive medical treatment at the emergency room of DeKalb Community Hospital. In that case, Jarvis is accused of visiting the emergency room using a fake name and address in order to receive medical treatment and medication for pain in his side that otherwise would have required a prescription to obtain.
