- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage pharmacist has admitted forging prescriptions for drugs. The Anchorage Daily News reports that 42-year-old Ronald Engberson pleaded guilty to forgery for writing 91 prescriptions for himself between January 2009 and March 2012. A judge on Tuesday sentenced him to two years of probation. Charging documents say investigators learned that Engberson forged prescriptions for drugs that included Hydrocodone, Diazepam and more than two dozen other medications. Engberson was formerly the pharmacist in charge of the Carrs Pharmacy on Huffman Road in south Anchorage. He has surrendered his state pharmacist's license. Prosecutors Clint Campion says there was no evidence the pharmacist was selling the drugs.
