WILKES-BARRE — A Nanticoke man accused of presenting fraudulent prescriptions at several pharmacies pleaded guilty to related charges in Luzerne County Court.


Marc J. Zawadzki, 41, of Center Street, pleaded guilty to four counts of acquiring a controlled substance by fraud.


Prosecutors withdrew charges of forgery and criminal use of communications facility against Zawadzki.


Authorities with the state Office of Attorney General’s Bureau of of Narcotics Investigations and Drug Control and Pittston police accused Zawadzki with presenting bogus prescriptions using his name and a woman’s name, and signing the prescriptions in the names of two physicians at a pharmacy on South River Street, Plains Township, and in Pittston on South Main Street and Kennedy Boulevard from August 2013 to February 2014, according to the criminal complaints.


Judge Joseph Sklarosky Jr. said Zawadzki will be sentenced Aug. 11.
