By The Mercury

A Seneca man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly impersonated a doctor in an attempt to obtain prescription drugs from the Target pharmacy in Manhattan.

Sgt. Brad Ingalls said police were called to 800 Commons Place at about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday by pharmacy employees after Patrick Wahl, 27, allegedly tried to unlawfully obtain prescription drugs.

He was arrested for two counts of obtaining a prescription unlawfully and two counts of false impersonation.

Ingalls said the two counts include a Jan. 3 incident in which Wahl previously allegedly attempted the same stunt at Walgreen’s near Westloop.

Wahl has been released from the Riley County Jail on $2,000 bond.
