CAMDEN – A former employee of a Mount Holly medical practice has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for selling fake prescriptions.

Jose Colon, 37, of Sicklerville, used the identities of doctors he worked with to make and sell fake prescriptions for painkillers, sedatives and other medications, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey.

Colon engaged in cash transactions, but also transferred some prescriptions electronically to pharmacies “in exchange for electronic payments from his customers,” federal prosecutors said in a statement.

He told customers to wait until the practice closed for the day before they filled their prescriptions. That way, the statement said, “Column will be able to answer any phone calls from pharmacies that question the authenticity of fake prescriptions.”
