OGDEN -- Police have obtained an arrest warrant for a man suspected of doctor shopping for prescription medications.
Randy Fitzgerald, 56, is wanted by the Weber-Morgan Narcotics Strike Force for falsely obtaining or dispensing prescription medications, a third-degree felony.
He remains at large.
Fitzgerald went to a Roy physician's office on July 7 complaining of back pain, and a doctor gave him a prescription for hydrocodone, a pain reliever, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
However, Fitzgerald did not disclose he was being treated by other doctors and also receiving prescription narcotics from them, the affidavit reads.
According to Fitzgerald's prescription history, from Aug. 5, 2011, to July 30, 2012, Fitzgerald has received 24 prescriptions for controlled substances from 10 providers and has used nine separate pharmacies, the affidavit indicates.
The Roy doctor eventually confronted Fitzgerald, who admitted he was getting narcotics from other physicians, the affidavit reveals.
Fitzgerald provided the doctor with a phone number and address that don't exist.
His whereabouts are unknown, the affidavit indicates.
