A 20-year-old was arrested after he tried to buy cough syrup with a fake prescription, police said.

Austin also said Ervin is connected to three other fake prescription incidents, two in Middletown and one in Wilmington.

Ervin was taken into custody without incident. He was charged with four counts of obtaining/attempting to obtain a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery or deception and one count of second-degree conspiracy.

He was arraigned at Justice of the Peace Court No. 2 and released on $10,000 unsecured bond.
