Charges filed in Hayden drug case

GREENSBURG – A Greensburg man alleged to have forged multiple prescriptions in five different Indiana counties will now face four felony charges in Decatur County.

According to Charging Information filed Friday in the Decatur Superior Court, Patrick H. Hayden, 37, has been charged with two counts of Possession of Methamphetamine and two counts of Forgery. The former charges are Class “B” felonies; the latter are Class “C” felonies.

Detectives with the Greensburg Police Department assert Hayden created counterfeit prescriptions in order to illegally obtain Adderall.

The charges filed in Decatur County pertain to a pair of incidents last fall during which Hayden is alleged to have had methamphetamine in his possession while passing a counterfeit prescription at Greensburg Walmart’s pharmacy. These incidents occurred Oct. 31 and Nov. 25, 2013, according to court documents.

As was previously reported in the Daily News, Hayden was arrested Friday following the execution of a search warrant at his residence at 719 South Michigan in Greensburg. During the search, police discovered evidence indicating Hayden had used his personal computer in order to manufacture counterfeit prescriptions. The suspect is alleged to have admitted dealing hydrocodone pills as well.

A press release from the Greensburg Police Department states Hayden may face further felony charges in Shelby, Rush and Franklin Counties.

Hayden is presently incarcerated in the Decatur County Jail. A Commercial Bond in the amount of $100,000 has been set for his release.

Hayden’s trial date has been set for 8:30 a.m. May 29.
