Fla. police request puts pharmacists in dilemma

Police use the sting operations as part of a broad effort to stop prescription pill trafficking

By Todd Ruger

SARASOTA, Fla. - State and federal laws prohibit pharmacists from filling prescriptions they know to be fraudulent, yet local police conducting sting operations are instructing pharmacists to break those laws.

Instead of arresting a suspect for passing a bogus prescription, detectives are telling pharmacists to fill the prescription while officers wait outside, ready to arrest the person carrying the pills.

Police get better evidence for court, and the suspect faces more time in prison on a more serious drug trafficking charge.
