CARMEL, N.Y. -- Three people were arrested last week and charged with forging prescriptions, Carmel police said.
Nicholas Gigliobianco, 32; Michelle Riviezzo, 35; and 35-year-old Anthony Riviezzo, all of Mahopac, N.Y., were charged with trying to fill the blank prescriptions, which had been swiped from a local doctor's office, according to a Carmel police news release.
The trio tried to fill the prescriptions at a CVS pharmacy, but the pharmacist became suspicious and called police, the release said. All three were taken into custody on Thursday.
Gigliobianco was charged with second-degree possession of a forged instrument, fifth-degree possession of stolen property, second-degree criminal contempt and third-degree possession of a controlled substance, according to the release. He was arraigned in Town Court and remanded to the Putnam County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Michelle Riviezzo faces three counts of third-degree possession of a controlled substance, three counts of second-degree possession of a forged instrument and three counts of fifth-degree possession of stolen property, the release said. Riviezzo was arraigned and held in Putnam County Jail after failing to post $10,000 bail.
