JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) — Police are working to identify a pair of men accused of passing fake prescriptions to obtain painkillers.

According to police, the black male pictured above picked up Oxycodone at the CVS on Atwood Avenue in Johnston on June 5 and June 22, and the prescriptions he used were later found to be false.

He’s described as a tall, heavyset black man in his mid-to-late 50s with no teeth. Police said there was a second suspect present on the first occasion, described as a white male in his late 20s to early 30s.

The suspects were seen operating a silver 2003 Mercedes with expired Rhode Island license plate 405-264.
