Woman faces cocaine charge

A traffic stop lead to cocaine charges for a 42-year-old Salisbury woman early this morning.
Salisbury Police Officer J.R. Cable pulled over a Chevrolet Tahoe around East Franklin Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue around 2 a.m. this morning after it was swerving across the road, the police report said.
The driver, John McCombs, admitted he did not have a driver’s license and the passenger in the back seat, Laura Schneider, asked Cable if her husband had reported the car to be stolen.
Cable reported that he became suspicious after the comment from Schneider and asked to search the car.
In the back seat where Schneider was sitting Cable reported finding Schneider’s wallet and a clear plastic bag containing .1 grams of powder cocaine.
Schneider, of 3725 Dunn’s Mountain Road, was arrested and charged with felony possession of cocaine and given a $1,000 secured bond.
Her first appearance in court is scheduled for Tuesday.
