Federal prosecutors said Lora Cupp, 35, of Rockholds, admitted she gave stolen pain pills to drug dealers in Whitley County.

Prosecutors said Cupp admitted that from October 2011 to February 22, 2012, she conspired with her son, Jordan Chute, 21, and his wife at the time, Breanna Rhoades, 24, to steal approximately 6,000 oxycodone pills from Whitley Family Pharmacy.

According to court documents, Rhoades worked as a pharmacy technician and stole between 100-and-200 oxycodone pills a week.

Chute reportedly helped Rhoades in transferring the stolen pills to Cupp, who gave them to the drug dealers to sell.

Rhoades and Chute previously pled guilty in this case, according to court documents.

Cupp is scheduled to be sentenced June 5, 2014.
