Scott Mooneyham

A 33-year old man was arrested after creating his own prescription labels. Scott Mooneyham was arrested at 1711 Old Fort Parkway after police were advised they needed to perform a "Patrol Check." That address is part of the Tennessee Probation and Parole Office.

Once on the scene, it was discovered that Moneyham, who is on probation, was in possession of several prescription drug bottles. The three bottles in question were labeled as "Desoxyn, Fluoxetine and Oxycodone." One of the three drugs is for ADHD patients, the second treats obsessive-compulsive disorder and the third is a painkiller. The labels of the three drugs appeared to be from Walgreens and Mooneyham even produced a record of his prescriptions from Walgreens. The only problem is, everything was fake, according to a police report.

Murfreesboro Police spoke to the officials at Walgreens. The report stated, "Pharmacy staff at Walgreens advised that the prescription number on each bottle did not match the prescription that the label stated." Mooneyham was arrested after he told police that he created the drug labels on a home computer.

The suspect was charged with "Identity Theft, Possession of a Legend Drug" and "Criminal Simulation."

It was later learned that Mooneyham had used his deceased brothers original prescription labels to make the new ones. He then forged the printed record in a effort to explain why he failed a urinalysis at the probation office, according to the police arrest report.
