CHARLES CITY – The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office last year arrested a Charles City woman on over a dozen charges related to prescription drug fraud, and this week she has entered a plea deal.

Aranda Jo Cowell, age 34, was served with an arrest warrant on November 11, 2014 by Floyd county deputies in connection to crimes she allegedly committed between May of 2013 and October of 2014. She was accused of eight counts of tampering with records, nine counts of prohibited acts with a controlled substance and identity theft. She allegedly tried to obtain morphine and hydrocodone from local drug stores and pharmacies.

On June 29, Cowell was sentenced to two suspended 10 year sentences on two C felony counts of prohibited acts; all the other charges were dismissed. She was also given three years of probation and ordered to pay $756.00 in court costs and fees. All fines were suspended.
