Police investigated a case of fraud this week in which a 53-year-old man was accused of forging a prescription for narcotics at the CVS Pharmacy on Main Street. One of two domestic disturbance calls resulted in officers seizing drug paraphernalia, and an Oakboro driver’s passenger side mirror was broken off by an unknown object while driving down Davidson-Concord Road. Afraid that she had struck a pedestrian, the driver made a U-turn and called 911, but no person or other objects in the road were found by police. Details on these stories and more (along with a tally of the week’s arrests, citations, and traffic enforcement) may be found below.
