Officers with the Clay County Sheriff's Department arrested a Clay City woman Thursday for dealing drugs.
Jill Jackson, 49, Clay City, was arrested shortly before 4 p.m., Thursday, following close to a two-week investigation.
CCSD Sheriff Mike Heaton said Jackson was booked into the Clay County Justice Center on three counts of Dealing a Schedule II Controlled Substance and one count of Neglect of a Dependent.
According to officials with CCSD, family members of an individual who was living with Jackson recently contacted the sheriff's department, alleging that Jackson was the live-in girlfriend of one of their relatives who is very ill. According to a press release provided by CCSD, the family alleged Jackson was supposed to be assisting him with his care.
The release stated the family believed Jackson was selling the ill family members' medication.
According to the release, controlled deliveries were arranged by Jackson during the past week and a half.
The medication that was purchased was Hydromorphone, which is a generic form of Dilaudid, a schedule II controlled drug used to control pain.
The release stated the person Jackson was living with has a legal prescription for the medication and a medical need for it. Through the course of the investigation, it was determined the person who had the prescription, was unaware the pills were being sold and had no involvement in the drug dealing.
"We have no idea how much was sold," Heaton said, adding the case is still under investigation.
Heaton said Jackson was booked into the justice center on a $25,000 bond.
