A 23-year-old Nacogdoches man was arrested for prescription fraud when he allegedly tried to get a third refill on a vicodin prescription his doctor had specified that no refills would be allowed.

Zachary Napier is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of fraudulent possession of a controlled substance/prescription. No bond has been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit, a representative of a local doctor's office contacted the Nacogdoches Police Department and informed the officer who took the call that the office issued Napier a prescription for vicodin on Nov. 8 that specified no refills were allowed. However, when the Nacogdoches Walgreens received the prescription, it had the number 2 marked in the refills section.

Napier allegedly returned to the drug store for a second refill on a prescription that was not to be refilled on Nov. 11, according to the arrest affidavit. Then, on Nov. 14, Napier reportedly called in a third refill for the same prescription.

At that time, a Walgreens representative called the doctor's office and advised them that a third prescription had been called in to the store. The doctor's office told the drug store representative that the original prescription was for no refills.

While the NPD officer was at Walgreens investigating the case, Napier showed up at the drug store to pick up his third refill. Later, the officer obtained a carbon copy of the original prescription, which said there was to be no refills, along with the prescription that Napier had that showed two refills.
