He was given a two-year probationary sentence and must pay $50 plus costs.The incident happened after Rite Aid refused to fill a prescription since he was already on pain medication. However, in an attempt to get his prescription for Tylenol-3 filled, he resorted to trickery.“Rite Aid received a call that was left on the after-hours phone,” said McMinnville police detective Tony Jenkins.
