Traffic stop nets $6,000 worth of marijuana

SALISBURY — A Rowan County Sheriff’s deputy reportedly found nearly $6,000 worth of marijuana in a Greensboro man’s vehicle Tuesday during a traffic stop.
According to the Sheriff’s Office report, Jeremy Omarous Neal, 21, of 1805 Fairfax Road in Greensboro, was clocked driving 81 miles per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone on Interstate 85 near Old Union Church Road. When a deputy stopped the vehicle, Neal said he was late to make a presentation at N.C. A&T State University.
The deputy then noticed a strong odor of both marijuana and men’s cologne coming from the vehicle. During a search, the deputy reported finding 1,182 grams — 2.6 pounds — of marijuana with a street value of $5,910 hidden in the vehicle’s rear corner panel.
Neal was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and maintaining a vehicle to keep and store drugs — both felony charges. He also was cited for speeding and driving while license revoked.
He was taken to the Rowan County Detention Center and given a $5,000 bond.
