The Henderson Police Department is searching for a man accused of using a forged prescription for Codeine.

According to HPD, the Owensboro doctor confirmed the prescription was a fake.

The police department says the suspect is a black male who was seen leaving the Walmart store in a red Jeep Cherokee (2016-2018 model) with a yellow license plate.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
