LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin man who was arrested back in April for prescription fraud for allegedly getting the same prescriptions at the Charles Wilson VA Clinic and several local doctors has found himself back in jail on a terroristic threat charge.

According to an arrest affidavit, further investigation into the case revealed that when a registered nurse at the Charles Wilson VA Clinic called Garry Lynn Wood to tell him that the clinic would no longer be able to fill his prescriptions and that a prescription fraud investigation had been started, he allegedly said, "If I don't get my pain medication, I will come up there and shoot somebody."

Wood, 61, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on a third-degree felony charge of terroristic threat to impair public or government service. No bail information was available as of 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Wood was originally arrested on the prescription fraud charge on March 31. He posted a bail of $3,500 and was released from the Angelina County Jail the next day.

According to the arrest affidavit for the alleged prescription medication fraud, Wood fraudulently obtained Hydrocodone, Oxycodine, and Diazepam from the Lufkin VA Clinic, Dr. Wilburn Furniss, and Dr. James Young in the period from September 2012 to September 2013 and picked up the prescriptions at several pharmacies in the Lufkin area.

The case was investigated by a sergeant with the Department of Veteran Affairs. According to the affidavit, the information was verified through a Texas Department of Public Safety Patient Prescription History Report.
