‘Fake pills, prescription pad’ lead to indictment of man, woman

RICHMOND — A Louisville man and woman have been indicted in Madison County after a November traffic stop yielded almost 600 counterfeit narcotics, cash and other illegal items.

John Wayne Litchfield, 32, and Amy Lynch, 33, both were indicted on charges of possession for sale or transfer of a simulated substance and criminal possession of a prescription blank.

Litchfield faces additional indictment charges of first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

Lynch also faces an additional indictment charge of first-degree possession of a controlled substance. If convicted on all charges, Litchfield could serve up to 11 years and six months in prison and Lynch could serve up to 11 years.

After a Nov. 15 traffic stop made by a Berea police officer, consent was given to search the vehicle which was occupied by Lynch and Litchfield. The officer found $1,522 in cash, 583 suspected oxycodone (Percocet) tablets, five blank prescription pads, one gram of crystal methamphetamine, a meth pipe, three alprazolam (Xanax) tablets and a small amount of marijuana, according to a press release from the Berea Police Department.

On Nov. 15 “... defendants unlawfully committed the offense of criminal possession of a prescription blank ... in the name of Dr. Maiysha Clairborne,” the indictment reads.

The two also “... possessed 582 tablets marked ‘M30’ or ‘A215’ which simulated tablets of oxycodone (Percocet),” it reads.

As of Friday afternoon, Litchfield and Lynch remained in the Madison County Detention Center on a $15,000 bond each.

• Jacob L. Newman, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, a Class C felony and tampering with physical evidence, a Class D felony. If convicted on all charges, Newman could serve up to 15 years in prison.
