LUCEDALE, Miss. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies say a Lucedale woman trying to sell hydrocodone at her booth at a George County flea market is accused of possession of narcotics with intent to sell.

Shonna Pierce, George County sheriff’s public information officer, tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1yvwz6Q ) a resident called in a tip that a woman was trying to sell the drug among other legal items.

Pierce says agents from the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the sheriff’s narcotics unit went to the flea market on Mississippi 198 East on Wednesday and arrested Charlet Olivia Dearman.

Authorities said they found about 70 doses of the Schedule II narcotic hydrocodone at the booth.

Dearman was taken to the George County jail and is awaiting a court appearance.

It was unclear whether she had an attorney.
