A New Berlin man is facing charges after he allegedly passed several forged prescriptions at a Brookfield pharmacy.
Michael C. Kenny, 52, was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Wednesday with four counts of uttering a forgery. If convicted, he faces up to 24 years in prison and $40,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On May 31, Brookfield police officers were called to CVS Pharmacy, 17165 W. Bluemound Rd., after it was discovered Kenny submitted prescriptions twice for 240 Hydrocodone pills and twice for 12 Zolpidem pills.
Police said Kenny admitted in an June 25 interview to passing photocopies of prescriptions to get the pills, saying he had pain after being involved in about six accidents in a former job that required him to drive frequently.
Kenny will make his first court appearance Sept. 10.
