The Henderson Police Department is searching for a man accused of using a forged prescription for Codeine.

HPD says its officers investigated the fraud report on July 23 after a Walmart pharmacist reported a man tried to use a forged prescription from a doctor in Owensboro.

According to HPD, the Owensboro doctor confirmed the prescription was a fake.

The police department says the suspect is a black male who was seen leaving the Walmart store in a red Jeep Cherokee (2016-2018 model) with a yellow license plate.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 270-831-1111.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
