A homeless 41-year old woman in Murfreesboro was arrested for allegedly selling Oxycodone this past weekend. The subject was picked up on Warrior Drive.

Oxycodone is a powerful prescription pain killer that is highly addictive. The report that WGNS obtained Monday showed that Christy Jackson had two bottles of the drug and one was filled for her on October 23rd and the second was filled on October 24th. By the time police encountered her, she had already sold up to 20-pills for $10 each, according to what she told an arresting officer.

The story took a turn when the woman told police why she was selling the prescription painkillers. Jackson told police she was selling the drugs to pay for a child's car seat and groceries.


Jackson was charged with the Sale of a Schedule Two drug and booked under an $8,500 bond. She remains behind bars at this time.
