Three people are facing felony meth charges following a shots fired investigation on Indian Town Road during the early-morning hours Wednesday, authorities said.
Alanna Katelynn Strouth, 24; Tony Wayne Dustin Strouth, 45; and Cynthia Lynn Cafaro, 31, all listed of 2964 Old Warsaw Road, Clinton, were charged in connection with the seizure of 3.2 grams of meth. They were arrested after 2 a.m. Wednesday at the 1600 block of Indian Town Road, Clinton, according to Sampson County Sheriff’s reports released Thursday.
“Deputies were investigating a shots fired call in the area of Indian Town Road when they came in contact with the suspect vehicle,” Lt. Marcus Smith stated Thursday. “A stop was conducted and, during the stop, a probable cause search was conducted due to the odor of marijuana. During the search, narcotics were found inside the vehicle.”
Alanna Strouth, who was also reportedly in possession of a gram of marijuana, was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana paraphernalia and possession of marijuana up to half an ounce. Tony Strouth was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, no insurance, fictitious/altered tag, expired/no inspection sticker and driving while license revoked.
The Strouths each received secured bonds of $30,000 apiece.
Cafaro was charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony probation violation out of Hoke County. She also had an alternate address of 104 Horace Court, Raeford, listed for her in sheriff’s records.
Cafaro received $30,000 secured bond for the drug offenses and an additional $10,000 for the probation violation charge.
According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Cafaro was convicted earlier this year in Cumberland County of felony breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering. The convictions in March stemmed from offenses that occurred in October 2015, court records show. She was given a suspended sentence and three years of probation as a result of that conviction, with her probation status still active.
No N.C. criminal records were found for either Alanna or Tony Strouth.
