OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- A New Albany woman has been arrested on three charges of illegally acquiring or obtaining possession of a controlled substance.
Attorney General Jim Hood says Jessica Gaines, 28, reported to the Lafayette County Sheriff last Thursday after being indicted by a Lafayette County Grand Jury during the first week in June.
Hood says Gaines worked as a registered nurse at the Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford when the incident happened on September 10, 2012.
The indictment alleges Gaines used an off-duty nurse's electronic medication dispensing machine log-in code to gain access to hydromorphone and morphine sulfate.
The hospital notified authorities after a review of the electronic dispensing system reports.
