A Tyrone man donned women's clothes to get a stolen prescription filled, Altoona police allege.
Michael C. Greene, 34, of 3113 S. Second St. dressed as a woman, complete with a hat, large sunglasses and women's Ugg boots, because the stolen prescription for 450 30 mg oxycodone pills was made out to a female, court records noted.
The prescription had been stolen in a burglary that was reported to state police and Greene allegedly signed the woman's name when he took the prescription Nov. 16 to Thompson's Pharmacy, 600 E. Chestnut Ave.
Greene left with the drugs and got into a Dodge Durango with a license plate that investigators traced back to his wife, police said.
Greene was arrested Wednesday by Altoona police and charged with acquiring a controlled substance through fraud, forgery or deception, possession of a controlled substance, forgery, theft and receiving stolen property.
A preliminary hearing is slated for Jan. 18 before Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey P. Auker, and Greene remains free on an unsecured $15,000 bail.
