IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Mountain View woman is in jail after stealing two thousand dollars and prescription medication. 

The Izard County Sheriff's Department formally charged Edna D. Diana, 47, with theft and possession of a controlled substance Monday after arresting her on Friday.

According to Sheriff Tate Lawrence, a couple reported $2000 in cash and Fentanyl patches stolen from the woman complaint's purse.

Mountain View Police Chief, Terry Rutledge, interviewed Diana. She confessed to taking the cash and the  prescription medication patches.

According to Agent James Humphrey of the 16th Judicial Drug Task Force, the prescription patches had been cut into small, chewable pieces, so they could be ingested to provide a high.

Diana is being held in the Izard County Detention Facility. Her bond was set at $10,000 and is also waiting extradition to Mississippi on unknown charges.
