That’s what friends are for
Armed only with her friend’s identification, Cheryl Calhoun was able to obtain a prescription for oxycodone from a local doctor and then obtain the medication at CVS Pharmacy.
She told both doctor and pharmacist that she was picking up the medication for her friend.
When the friend found out, she called the police. Officers responded to Montana Lil’s, where the friends were fighting, Undersheriff George Skuletich told reporters this morning. The police were dispatched yesterday afternoon.
Among the charges leveled against Ms. Calhoun are possession of dangerous drugs, theft of identity and contempt of court, according to the BSB jail roster.

Evening curbed on a high note
Virginia Gothro high-centered her vehicle close to home.
She didn’t quite make a corner on the 2600 block of Molton. The curb is high there according to Undersheriff George Skuletich who described it as “homemade.”
Unable to proceed, Ms. Gothro went on foot to her home to get help from her husband. Police found her at her residence.
She was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence. When she took a breath test, she blew two times the legal limit.
She has been charged with failure to give notice of an accident and aggravated DUI. Since the charge was Ms. Gothro’s fourth or subsequent DUI, that charge was a felony.

Two men gained a high vantage point Friday when they broke into Evergreen Medical on Front Street Friday morning.
The store’s video showed that the men approached the medical marijuana shop from the railroad tracks behind the building. The men approached from the west. No vehicle was seen in the area. Once at the structure, the burglars used a folding portable ladder to climb to the roof. From the roof, they made their entry into the shop, police said.
After spending roughly two and one half hours in the business, the men left with $12,000 worth of marijuana and $1,200 in “cool coil” wiring, police said.
Police found spent saw blades on the roof where the burglars gained access to the shop. Investigators also found footprints on the roof.
Video showed that both men wore desert camouflage clothing.
Two alarms went out from the building during the crime, but when police arrived there was no sign at the perimeter of the building that it had been entered. The alarms came in at 2:24 am and at 3:56 am, police said. Video showed the men entering the building at 1:30 am and leaving at 4:07 am, police said.
The business owners did not respond to the alarms until roughly 7:00 am, police reported.
The investigation is ongoing, Undersheriff George Skuletich told reporters at this morning’s media briefing.
