On Monday evening, May 14th, at 8:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a forgery call at a pharmacy located near the 15700 block of East Broadway Road in Spokane Valley. According to an employee, a female was attempting to have a prescription
of Oxycodone filled from a prescription pad that had been reported stolen from a doctor's office. When a pharmacy employee told the female the prescription was going to have be verified with the doctor's office, she left the store. As soon as Deputy Berrow
entered the business, an employee told him the female suspect just walked out.
Deputy Berrow looked outside and observed a female, later identified as 27-year-old Nicole Wright, running through the parking lot. Deputy Berrow told Deputy Powers Ms. Wright was their suspect. Deputy Powers drove through the parking lot and observed Wright
and 33-year-old Coby Adams running through the parking lot together. Deputy Powers detained both at the back of the business complex.
Wright told Deputy Powers she was filling the prescription for a friend. Deputy Powers was not able to find any record of the name provided by Wright , nor did Wright have a phone number for her friend. Deputy Howe arrived on scene and searched Adams before
placing him in the back of his patrol vehicle. During the search, Deputy Howe noticed folded paper fall from the shorts Adams was wearing. Adams placed his foot over the paper and attempted to slide it under Deputy Howe's patrol vehicle. After Adams was safely
secured in the patrol vehicle, Deputy Howe retrieved the folded paper. They were the same stolen prescriptions Wright presented at the pharmacy, all for Oxycodone, all prescribed to Wright.
• Wright was booked into the Spokane County Jail for five counts of Prescription Fraud and one count of Possession of Stolen Property 2nd Degree.
• Adams was booked into the Spokane County Jail on 4 counts of Prescription Fraud and one count of Possession of Stolen Property 2nd Degree.
