Lumpkin Co woman arrested after drug shipment is intercepted

An investigation into a reportedly stolen package ended with the arrest of a Georgia woman and seizure of 30,000 prescription pills, deputies say.

Officials with the Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office tell WSB the incident began when deputies traced a mail package that had been intercepted to a local home.

Deputies and Homeland Security agents ultimately conducted a search of the home, which is located off White Oak Lane.

During the search, authorities seized around 30,000 Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) prescription pills, various other pills and firearms.

Lorraine Sharp, 57, was arrested and charged with possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance with the intent to distribute.

She is currently being held in the Lumpkin County Jail.
