If you’re riding around with illegal narcotics, it may be best to be in a properly registered vehicle.
A Salisbury woman found that out on July 11 when the car she was driving was stopped for an expired registration violation on US 601 South near Fairfield Road, Mocksville.
Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman reports that deputies making the stop had cause to search the vehicle, and the passenger, Nicole Milles, of Needmore Road, possessed methamphetamine, suboxone and drug paraphernalia.
A subsequent search at the Davie Sheriff’s Office revealed an additional 22 grams of methamphetamine, along with fentanyl, heroin and drug paraphernalia hidden on her person, Hartman said.
She was charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture sell and deliver methamphetamine, felony possession with intent to manufacture sell and deliver heroin, felony possession with intent to manufacture sell and deliver a Schedule II controlled substance, felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of Schedule II controlled substance, felony possession of heroin, simple possession Schedule III controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Milles was taken into custody in lieu of a $35,000d bond, pending a July 27 appearance in Davie District Court.
