Oxycodone Dealer Sentenced to Prison

February 6, 2017

Suspect Arrested Again After Release on Bond

In August of 2015, the Lexington Police Department executed a search warrant at the Spiegle Heights residence of Terrica Cayson. Narcotics detectives seized over 100 oxycodone pills, almost $16,000 in cash, and two handguns. Cayson was arrested for trafficking in narcotics and released on bond shortly thereafter.

While on bond Cayson continued to engage in narcotics activity and police returned to the residence in January of 2016, with another search warrant. Cayson was in possession of several hundred oxycodone pills and over $5,000, arrested again, and charged with trafficking in narcotics.

Ms. Cayson was 29 at the time of the first offense and has only minor misdemeanor offenses in her background, which also includes experience as a former corrections officer.

Cayson pled guilty to two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, first degree for the 2015 and 2016 violations. On January 27, Cayson was sentenced to a total of seven years in prison, to be followed by five years of probation, with forfeiture of the narcotics, paraphernalia, firearms, and over $21,000 seized. She will be eligible for parole after serving 20% of her sentence. The prosecutor was Dan Laren.
