CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Montgomery County Commissioner Jeremy Bowles was charged with four counts of prescription forgery and one count of identity theft Tuesday, according to an indictment.

Bowles, 35, allegedly used another man's identity to obtain Oxycodone from a Walgreen's pharmacy on August 10, 13 and 14, the indictment said.

Bowles, a pharmacist, received his pharmacy degree from the University of Kentucky.

He won his District 17 seat in an unopposed 2010 election.

The five felony counts against Bowles were charged through a sealed indictment signed by 13 grand jurors and witnessed by a Drug Task Force agent. After Bowles' arrest, the indictment was made public.

Bowles was released on a $5,000 bond.
