Decatur Police arrested a Moulton man they said passed off three false prescriptions for controlled medication at a local pharmacy. He's also suspected of the same crime at pharmacies in Lawrence County.

Investigators said he used the forged prescriptions earlier this month at a Walgreens on Beltline Road. It lead to an investigation which resulted in his arrest on Wednesday.

Bradley Lathan is charged with three counts of unlawful possession and receipt of a controlled substance. He's in the Morgan County Jail on $3,500 bond.
