Drug Re-Sale Charges Pending In Two Cases

A Cookeville woman who allegedly took prescription medication from a patient she was caring for and then gave it to an accomplice to sell is facing charges today. Police say 44-year-old Sharon Gail Dyer was arrested after a traffic stop during which authorities allegedly found a pill bottle containing xanax, clonazepam, and oxycodone. Police say Dyer and the passenger in the vehicle, 48-year-old Cary Ray Hamlet, both initially denied ownership of the pills, but they claim Dyer later told them that she is a nurse who took the pills from a patient and gave them to Hamlet to sell. Both were arrested, but will be in court on different days this month.
