Fight over pain pills leads to woman’s arrest

MANATEE -- A Manatee County woman was arrested Tuesday after an argument over prescription pills, the sheriff’s office reports.

Elizabeth White, 30, who gets her Oxycodone prescription filled at the end of each month frequently trades pills with a woman who gets her medication filled at the beginning of each month, a media release said.

White gets 15 pills from the other woman and returns with interest 30 pills to the other woman at the end of each month, the release said.

But at about 7 p.m. the other woman told White she wasn’t going to give her any more pills, causing White to allegedly attack her in an apartment in the 8400 block of Tamiami Trail, the release said.

The victim then gave White a small container of six Oxycodone pills, the release said. White took the pills and fled, but was later arrested.

White is currently in Manatee County jail.
