Held for Defrauding Druggists.

Accused of having defrauded a number of druggists by representing himself as a veterinarian, Patrick Slavin, of Tenth street near Cherry, was held under $800 bail by Magistrate Beaton yesterday for another hearing in Police Court next Wednesday. It is alleged that Slavin, in visiting the stores, would enter the prescription department and obtain cocaine and heroin and other narcotics by pretending that he needed them in connection with his professional practice.
