The agents conducted an undercover operation in Marion County over several months in 2016, eventually purchasing fentanyl from the suspects, according to a news release. The drug had been pressed into a pill form and disguised as oxycodone.

On Dec. 4, the Marion County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Carol Dianne Smith, 46, and Steven James Adkins, 27, each with two counts of sale/delivery of a Schedule II controlled substance.

Smith was arrested and booked into the Marion County jail and placed on a $17,500 bond, while Adkins was arrested Tuesday in Grundy County and placed on a $10,000 bond.
