Henryville woman charged with selling oxycodone pills in Jeffersonville

Katherine L. Jeffries faces class A felony, other charges

JEFFERSONVILLE — Jeffersonville Police Department officers arrested a Henryville woman after she sold prescription drugs to officers in the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant on Allison Lane on Monday afternoon, police say.

Katherine Lee Jeffries, 36, of 5716 Snow Road, is accused by police of selling 30 oxycodone pills for $480. She was arrested about 4 p.m. after the controlled buy took place.

Investigators said information was provided that Jeffries was selling prescription drugs in Jeffersonville area. Police found three additional oxycodone pills in Jeffries’ possession during a search of her vehicle and purse, investigators said.

Jeffries was preliminarily charged with dealing in cocaine or narcotic drug, a class A felony, and possession of cocaine or narcotic drug and maintaining a common nuisance, both class D felonies. If found guilty of the above charges, Jeffries could be sentenced to the Indiana Department of Correction for 56 years.

Jeffries arrest earlier this week is the most recent in a string of charges. According to court documents, Jeffries was charged with theft and possession of paraphernalia in November 2010. In March 2011, she was charged with possession of controlled substances, unlawful possession or use of legend drug or precursor, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and possession of marijuana. Jeffries was charged in June 2011 with theft and two counts possession of controlled substances. In August 2011, she was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated — endangering a person, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with controlled substances in person’s body.

In most of these cases, Jeffries agreed to plea deals resulting in probation sentencings.

No court information was available on Jeffries’ most recent charges as of press time.
