Police: Chicago resident had fake prescription at Evanston CVS

A Chicago resident was arrested Wednesday night after trying to buy a pain killer with a fake prescription at a drug store near the Evanston border, according to police.

Sadija Husanovic, 29, was charged with forgery in connection with the incident at CVS, 101 Asbury Ave. Husanovic, of the 7300 block of North Hoyne Avenue, admitted to illegally signing a doctor’s name to attempt to purchase Percocet and an antibiotic, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.
