Two people are facing charges they dumped a load of shingles on a Sampson County property and, when stopped by sheriff’s deputies in the northern part of the county Sunday, were found in possession of meth, marijuana and prescription drugs, authorities said.
According to Sampson County Sheriff’s authorities, they received a call from a victim who witnessed a suspect dump a load of shingles on his property, and followed the suspect while contacting 911.
Dispatchers relayed the information to officers in the area and the Criminal Interdiction Officers located the 2017 Dodge 2500 SLT and conducted a stop at the intersection of U.S. 13 and U.S. 421 in Spivey’s Corner.
During the stop, a search yielded meth, diazepam (valium) and methamphetamine. Reports state half a gram of meth, three grams of marijuana and 10 pills of diazepam were seized.
Jamey Glenn Gilbert, 40, of 277 E. N.C. 27, Lillington, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, littering over 500 pounds and possession of drug paraphernalia, while Tiffany Alease Barbour, 30, of 6717 Shanghai Drive, Willow Spring, was charged with littering over 500 pounds as well as two counts of simple possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance.
Gilbert was placed in the Sampson County Detention Center under $17,000 bond for those charges. Barbour’s bond was set at $8,000.
Additionally, Gilbert was served with warrants from other counties on charges of larceny and receiving stolen property. Those charges stemmed from warrants issued just days earlier out of Wake and Harnett counties, respectively. He was given $14,000 secured bond for those offenses.
