Two people were arrested following a probationary search at a Clinton-area home, after methamphetamine, marijuana and weapons were found, authorities said.

On Friday, agents with Sampson County Special Investigation Division assisted Probation and Parole authorities with a search of the suspect’s residence at 5967 N. U.S. 421 Hwy., Clinton.

During the search, 14.5 grams of meth, 26.3 grams of marijuana and two firearms were recovered, Sheriff’s Lt. Marcus Smith said. As a result, two people were taken into custody and charged.

Jennifer Eileen Torres, 33, of 5967 N. U.S. 421 Hwy., Clinton, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a dwelling for the sale and storage of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of firearm by felon, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $25,000 secured.

Marcus Warren Naylor, 43, of 8318 N. Salemburg Hwy., Roseboro, was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond set at $5,000.

According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Torres was convicted in November 2016 in Sampson County of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and larceny. She was given a suspended sentence and two years of probation, a probationary status that is currently active.
