Peekskill Police Arrest Cortlandt Man for Forging Fake Prescriptions

Michale Smith, 47, was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument Monday.

A Cortlandt Manor man faces felony forgery charges after he allegedly used phony prescriptions at Peekskill pharmacy earlier this month.

Police arrested Michael Smith, 47, Monday and charged him with criminal possession of a forged instrument. On Jan. 2, Peekskill police allege that Smith walked into a local pharmacy and presented five forged prescriptions.

Smith was arraigned and released to appear in court at a later date.

Should have also been charged with forging that awful 'stache.

That 'stach is trash...

An insult to all of us at the International Association of Bearded and Mustached Gentlemen. I hope they shave that off when he gets to jail.

The 'stache is looking a bit awful!

That liphair's gonna make my man real popular in the joint!

Man, you guys are brutal. I admit it's not a great display of tonsorial art but, come on, show a little mercy here. It's bad enough the guy's probably going to jail but to be mercilessly ragged on for a facial hair error in judgment? Rough crowd here.

Us show mercy? Was Mike Smith showing mercy when he inflicted that stache on thousands of innocent bystanders? I think not. He was committing assault with a deadly stache and many of us haven't been the same since.

That is a semi-automatic assault stache and it should be banned.

Has everyone overlooked the fact that his head was dyed with wood stain? Evidently he thought his nose was so special it had to be underlined.

Like socks, you got to keep your 'stache up. You never know what kind of trouble you can wind up in.
Teleman January 11, 2013 at 09:18 PM
He'll be giving mustache rides in the lockup I bet

OMG! This is arguably the most hysterical thread I have encountered! Sooooo needed the laugh you all created! (Composing myself now) ... and another great job in Peekskill in thwarting the ongoing epidemic of prescription drug abuse and trafficking. Side note ... guessing the forged instrument must have been better than his stache trimmer
