Kentucky woman found with over 850 pills in car sentenced

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Kentucky woman has been sentenced after a Huntington police officer found more than 850 pills in her vehicle.

Acting U.S. Attorney Carol Casto says in a news release that 45-year-old Karen Sue Fields of Olive Hill, Kentucky, was sentenced to three years and a month in federal prison Tuesday.

Fields was charged with possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and alprazolam. She pleaded guilty in September.

Authorities say Fields was charged in July 2014 after a traffic stop. A Huntington police officer found more than 800 oxycodone tablets and more than 50 alprazolam tablets in a search of Field’s vehicle.

Authorities say Fields admitted she bought the pills for $17,500 and was on her way back to Kentucky to deliver them to another individual.
