ROSEBORO — Two people are facing drug-related offenses following an early-morning traffic stop, during which meth and paraphernalia was found, authorities said.
At around 3 a.m. Tuesday, Sampson County Sheriff’s deputies working the Roseboro area conducted a traffic stop on a red Pontiac Grand Prix for a traffic violation on N.C. 24 near Andrews Chapel Road.
“There were obvious signs of impairment of the driver (observed) by deputies and further questioning revealed the driver was possibly impaired on meth,” Lt. Marcus Smith noted. “A search of the vehicle revealed a half gram of meth. As a result the driver and passenger were taken into custody and charged.”
The driver, Jessie Danzig Robinson, 23, of 300 Jones St., Salemburg, and passenger Destiny Marie Seward, 21, of 254 Sunny Dale Drive, Roanoke Rapids, were each charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Robinson was additionally charged with driving while impaired.
Robinson received a bond of $9,500 secured, while Seward was placed under $7,500 secured bond for the offenses.
