Woman pleads guilty to prescription drug possession


FINDLAY — A Louisville, Ky. woman arrested last year with $90,000 in prescription drugs in her car pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of aggravated possession of drugs.

Jessica R. Smith, 29, is to be sentenced July 1 by Hancock County Common Pleas Judge Reginald Routson. As part of a plea agreement, both the prosecutor and her defense attorney said they would recommend she serve three years in prison.

Smith was stopped on I-75 near Findlay for a marked-lanes violation last July 25 while driving a rented luxury car. A drug-sniffing dog from the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office alerted officers to possible drugs in the vehicle, and a search turned up 1,486 Lortab pills, 172 OxyContin pills, 143 Xanax pills, and 24 bottles of Tylenol with codeine.
