DEWITT, N.Y. (WKTV) - A pair of Blossvale brothers have been charged after authorities say they presented what was believed to be stolen or forged prescriptions at a grocery store.

The New York State Department of Health Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement and the New York State Police in LaFayette arrested brothers Forrest E. Halbritter, 28, and Aaron G. Halbritter, 30, both of of Blossvale, and charged them each with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminal possession of a forged Instrument, and first-degree falsifying business records.

They are are the sons of Oneida Indian Nation CEO Ray Halbritter.

In late March 2012, authorities said Forrest and Aaron Halbritter each presented a stolen/forged prescription to a pharmacist at Wegman's Grocery Store on James Street in the Town of Dewitt in order to receive Oxycodone/Percocet.

Both were arraigned before a Village of East Syracuse Justice released, set to re-appear at a later date.
