Symsonia woman charged with selling her pain medication

A Symsonia woman was arrested and charged with selling her pain medication.

The Paducah Police Department says on July 23, 59-year-old Sherry Lovelace reported that she went into a restaurant to use a restroom and left her purse in the car with a friend.

She told police when they parted a short time later, she found that her bottles of Hydrocodone and Diazepam were missing from her purse.

An investigation found that the medication theft may have been part of a drug deal gone wrong.

Lovelace admitted to police that she agreed to trade 10 Hydrocodone tablets for her friend’s food stamp card, which was worth about $140.

The detective investigating also found that Lovelace had sold her pain medication on more than a dozen occasions. 

Lovelace was charged with 14 counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. She was taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
