A Weston man was charged with forgery Monday after he allegedly attempted to fill a forged prescription at Switzer's Pharmacy in Southport last month.

A pharmacist called police to report that the date on the prescription had been altered, and the doctor had not initialed it, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

The pharmacist had called the prescribing doctor's medical group and confirmed the doctor had not changed the date of the suspect's prescription. Police determined that the prescription had been forged.

Simon Billig, 46, of Steep Hill Road, turned himself in at police headquarters on a warrant that charged him with two counts of second-degree forgery and two counts of misuse of a prescription.

He was released after posting a $2,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 14.
