Holly MacGregor

Three people from Maryland were arrested at a York County pharmacy for trying to purchase painkillers with a forged prescription on Friday. Holly MacGregor, 28, of Baltimore, attempted to pass a forged prescription at a pharmacy located in the 1500 block of North George Street in Manchester Township.

The prescription had the name of a man who wasn’t with MacGregor, police said.

The two men who were with MacGregor were also arrested. They have been identified as Kevin Parker, 26, and Lawrance Price Jr., 29, both of Baltimore.

Officers obtained a search warrant and found seven additional forged prescriptions in their vehicle.

All three are facing numerous charges including Forgery, Attempted Possession of a Controlled Substance and Pharmacy Act Violations.

    I know a lot of people will make rude remarks. Not me. Drug addiction is hard to kick. Most times, it s either shame or not realizing you have an issue. I have had many friends/family with drug addictions, and I have seen what it has done to them. These three individuals need help, not jail. How are they to get better without counseling? I don t condone what they did. But we are quick to judge before knowing ones situations.

      Give it a rest, lady. These criminals are utterly responsible, excuses from you notwithstanding.

      O give me a break! Yes it's hard to kick, but you know what grow a pair and GO TO REHAB! Kicking a habit is no reason to write fake scripts. It's because of people like this that make it harder for people who actually need the meds to be able to get them.

    I agree with wut the lady on top said. They need help not jail. Legalize marijuana. Jail should be for REAL criminals. Go to north philly and youll see wut i mean. Thats if you dont get robbed for your eyeballs. Small town petty bs.
