RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. -

Two Rutherford County women are charged with TennCare fraud after it was discovered they were selling prescription drugs paid for by TennCare.

Eva Boutwell, 24, and 22-year-old Brittany King were taken into police custody after a joint investigation.

"Local police and community leaders are targeting prescription drug abuse in communities across the state," Inspector General Deborah Y. Faulkner said. "We're committed to weeding out those members of TennCare who are using the program in this way."

Boutwell is charged with one count of TennCare fraud, while King is charged with two counts of TennCare fraud as well as two counts of sale of a Schedule III controlled substance.

TennCare fraud is a Class E felony that carries a sentence of up to two years in prison.

Anyone who suspects TennCare fraud is urged to report it by calling 1-800-433-3982.
