APPOMATTOX CO.--State Police are trying to identify a man wanted for committing prescription fraud in the Charlottesville, Roanoke and Tidewater areas.

During the past two weeks, the unidentified white male has attempted to or obtained at least six illegal prescriptions at pharmacy chain stores in the Charlottesville area.

The fraudulent prescriptions are written for painkillers, most commonly for Oxycodone. Investigators have reason to believe the suspect may be working with a group of individuals to illegally obtain the prescription narcotics.

Anyone with information about the man are asked to contact the Virginia State Police at (434)352-3469 or email john.phillips@vsp.virginia.gov.
