Toms River Man Indicted on Multiple Charges, Burglary, Forgery

27 year-old faces two separate indictments

Bryan W. Keller, 27, of Toms River, in two separate indictments, faces charges allegedly for incidents in September and January.

The first indictment charges Keller with three counts of forgery; he is accused of presenting three checks drawn on the account of James Ventimiglia -- for $250, $200 and $400 -- to two banks in Toms River on Sept. 17 and Sept. 19. He was released on a summons on those charges at the time of his arrest.

In the second indictment, Keller is facing eight counts -- three counts of uttering a forged instrument and one each of third-degree burglary, third-degree theft, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, obtaining a controlled dangerous substance by fraud and attempting to obtain a controlled dangerous substance by fraud.

The indictment charges Keller broke into Alpha Medical Services and stole prescription blanks, then forged prescriptions for oxycodone that he then presented at two different pharmacies in an attempt to obtain the drug.

Keller remains in the Ocean County Jail on $35,000 bail, no 10 percent option.

Chrissy I have to not agree with you that it is the drug company's fault. Oxycodone is a very powerful pain reliever that many cancer victims rely on to ease the pain of their disease. Now along comes the, please excuse the non PC expression, junkies who break all kinds of laws to get high and you seem to feel it is the drug company's fault. No, it is the criminal's fault. Plain and simple. They are breaking laws and creating victims out of unsuspecting innocent people. Your reasoning is what has made the Country what it is today. We are in bad shape because nobody is held accountable. I hope you or a member of your family never needs a strong pain killer and finds it has been taken off of the market because "junkies' abuse it.

No it's definitely the criminals fault but the drug companies contribute and enable the problem. Coke, weed, dope come from fields most of the time from other countries. There is no way to regulate them, but thus goes to three levels all highly regulated before it hits the street. I hate junkies and destroying a generation/country but I find it mildly disturbing at the end of the rainbow it's shareholders and legit companies profiting from this epidemic.

I am surely taking this a a bit of satire - if I'm wrong - all I can say is "Take your right hand and grab your left ear, take your left hand and grab your right ear and pull your head out of your ..............."

People are responsible for their own actions! How do you blame a drug company for burglary, thievery, forgery, etc. by others. If those companies were just setting boxes & boxes of these meds out on their loading docks for just anyone to stop by and pick them up then YES go after them but in my warped perspective of how the world works they are either being stolen, imported from countries with less stringent controls, or being manufactured in your neighbors' basement. Remember the article recently where an employee of either a Walmart or Wallgreens store was caught making crystal meth using the "Shake & Bake" method? A small vial, drain cleaner, bleach, cold medicine and he was cooking it up while on the job. The internet is an amazing bit of technology. Unfortunately, you can learn how do nearly anything from it.
