    Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agents and Tulsa County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a woman after she accepted a FedEx package from Mexico that had 22.3 grams of fentanyl in it Thursday morning.

    Agents said they already had an anticipatory search warrant for the woman's home near 46th Street and Hartford and were able to have an undercover agent pose as a FedEx delivery driver. Thursday morning, the agent went to the house where he found a woman later identified as Nabrai Lyons. The agent told Lyons that he had a package for Ashlee Jones. Lyons told the officer multiple times that she was Ashlee Jones and signed the delivery card.

    Agents and deputies later searched the house and found a scale with an unknown powder residue; a grinder with an unknown powder residue; a clear bag containing an unknown, tan powder in a child's bedroom under the mattress; numerous baggies; a vacuum sealer and baggies; a 9 millimeter Taurus handgun; and an extended, 30-round, 9 milimeter magazine, according to the report.

    A test determined the unknown, tan powder contained a cutting agent called a-Lactose monohydrate and an opioid agonist called noscapine hydrochloride hydrate, according to the arrest report.

    Lyons told agents she accepted the package as Ashlee Jones because she orders things under other people's names all the time and didn't know it was illegal to accept packages in someone else's name.

    According to the police report, Lyons said she doesn't know how the powder got in the grinder or under the child's mattress. She admitted to smoking weed without a medical card and said she uses the scale to make sure she isn't being ripped off. 

    The gun found was purchased at a gun show and had proper paperwork.

    Lyons stated she would not give her phone pass code to verify she didn't order the package and would take full responsibility for accepting the package but didn't know what was in it. 

    Officials said fentanyl is commonly used in heroin to make it more potent but are not sure that was the purpose of this package.

    The package came from Mexico and was seized by United States Customs.

    Lyons was transported to the Tulsa County Jail on charges of conspiracy to commit felony and possession of a firearm while committing a felony offense charges.
