Police Report: Feb. 15, 2013
Pain med obsession
A man was cited for fraudulently seeking prescription pain killers at the U Medical Center on Feb. 8. At 11 a.m., the man asked for Percocet claiming he had pain in his wrist and his jaw, said Sgt. Garth Smith with U Police in an email. Smith said the physician’s assistant was suspicious and checked the Utah Department of Occupational and Professional Licensing controlled substance database and found the man had a pattern of pain medication prescriptions.
Later, Smith said the man admitted to being addicted to the medication. Smith did not make it clear whether the man admitted this to the police or to the physician’s assistant.
Charges of prescription fraud were filed with the Salt Lake District Attorney, Smith said.
Two cars stolen
A 2005 White GMC Sierra was stolen from the Benchmark dorm parking lot on Feb. 9.
“The victim started his truck at [8:40 a.m.] and went back to his dorm room to gather his snowboarding gear,” Smith said. “When he returned, it was gone.”
On Monday, a Red Honda Prelude was stolen from the Merrill Engineering lot. The theft occurred between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m.
