Moultrie police became very familiar with a 36-year-old man who was the subject of a half-dozen law enforcement reports before he was arrested on Tuesday.

The man, identified as Ian Mathew Carey, was reported by two physician’s offices who claimed that Carey was seeking a prescription for pain medication, Moultrie Police Department reports said. He also filed multiple reports involving a stolen car.

Police first encountered Carey at about 10:20 a.m. at a doctor’s office in the 300 block of Sunset Circle. An employee there told officers that Carey wanted a prescription for hydrocodone and became irate when a doctor told him he would have to go to Colquitt Regional Medical Center.

Carey told police that he did not ask for a prescription and that the doctor had been rude to him. He was detained because he was being disruptive in the lobby of the office, but began having a possible seizure in the back of a patrol car, police reports said. After he was checked by emergency medical personnel he was released and told not to return to the doctor’s office.

At 11:44 a.m. police received a call that Carey had asked for hydrocodone prescriptions in the 3000 block of Second Street Southeast, where a witness said he entered an employee’s vehicle on the passenger side while the employee was in the car.

Carey told police he needed a cab to get back to his car, but did not have any money. At about 2:15 p.m., Carey showed up at the police department lobby to report that his 2013 Kia Rio had been stolen. He could not tell police where he last saw the car, and after making the report he left to look for it, reports said.

At about 3:30 police were called to a medical office in the 200 block of 31st Avenue Southeast. Officers found Carey at Colquitt Regional, and took him back to the medical office, where an employee told police he had been harassing patients. At that time he was served with a trespass notice for that location.

At 4:45 p.m. Carey called police saying that he was in the 200 block of Sunset Circle and wanted to file a report of a missing car. Police found him back at the medical office on 31st Avenue, where he was arrested.

Carey, of 2341 Cape Coral Parkway, Cape Coral, Fla., was charged with criminal trespass.
