SYCAMORE – A Chicago woman who police said tried to use fake prescriptions for oxycodone at two local pharmacies was ordered to be released on her signature Thursday.

Marvis T. Adams, 65, of the 1600 block of West Madison Street in Chicago, is charged with forgery. If convicted, she could face two to five years in prison.

Police responded about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday to Jewel-Osco at 1320 Sycamore Road in Sycamore to a report of a man and woman trying to fill a bogus prescription for 60 30-milligram tablets of oxycodone, according to court records.

A pharmacist told police that the two suspects had moved on to Hy-Vee at 2700 DeKalb Ave., making another attempt, records said. Police found Adams, who said she would be given $50 if she filled the prescriptions.

The prescriptions had been written to a Jarvis McGee, according to court records, which added that police spoke to a Mark L. McGee, an involved party in the incident, who denied any involvement in the crime. Chief Judge Robbin Stuckert ordered that Adams not have any contact with the Jewel-Osco or Hy-Vee in question.

She is due back in court Feb. 23.
