ELIZABETHTON — A Carter County woman was arrested over the weekend on a charge she used her TennCare benefits to illegally obtain a prescription drug and then sold the drug to an undercover officer.

Krystal Nicole Huser, 29, 212 Jenkins Hollow Road, was arrested by Capt. Tom Smithi of the Carter County Sheriff's Department on a March grand jury presentment charging her with TennCare fraud.

According the grand jury presentment, Huser falsely obtained a subscription for Suboxone, a drug used to treat opiate addiction, on June 15, 2012. The presentment said she then sold the Suboxone to an undercover agent working for the First Tennessee Judicial Task Force.
