A Jackson woman has been arrested following a four-month long investigation by the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.

MBN Director John Dowdy stated that 31-year-old Ashley Washington was arrested while she was at a local health clinic.

With assistance from the DEA and the Jackson PD, the MBN’s investigation found that Washington fraudulently obtained 180 initial dosage units of Oxycodone, and 90 units at a later date.
