Pharmacist charged with forgery

A local pharmacist was who worked at the CVS store on Broadway was arrested last week for forging documents to obtain prescription medications.

Brandon M. Cigana, 31, of Route 4 in Whitehall, was charged with two counts of second degree forgery, a felony, for allegedly filling unauthorized requests for prescriptions.

Police allege that Cigana twice forged documents to obtain medications he then administered to his children to treat the flu.

Cigana filed the requests and noted in the paperwork they were authorized by a doctor over the phone when they were not.

CVS learned of the Cigana’s alleged actions earlier this year and reported the matter to police who examined pharmacy records.

Cigana was arraigned in Whitehall Court and released to appear at a later date.

The investigation and arrest was handled by Sergeant Richard LaChapelle and Investigator Frank Hunt.
