West Milford residents Austin Demarest, 18, Joshua Walker, 18, and Matthew Florman, 25, allegedly paid Roland Brown, 56, of Carlstadt to obtain prescription medications from a pharmacy on West Pleasant Avenue in Maywood on Tuesday, Maywood police said in a press release. When Brown’s prescription was denied, Demarest allegedly confronted him and forcibly attempted to get the money back, the release said.
