Posted: Wednesday, December 23, 2009

FAIRBANKS - The authorities arrested a Fort Wainwright woman accused of giving her daughter a prescription drug to sell at school.

Erica Durham was charged with felony drugs misconduct and a magistrate set her bail at $25,000.

The Alaska Bureau of Alcohol and Drug Enforcement began investigating the 40-year-old last week, when she allegedly sold Adderall and Sudafed pills to an undercover officer.

When interviewed by investigators, the daughter reportedly told the officer her mother gave her Adderall to sell at high school. According to court documents, the girl said she sold one pill and the rest were stolen.

Adderall is commonly prescribed to treat attention deficit disorder.

Durham is not an Army soldier, but lives on post.
