SALISBURY — Authorities charged a Salisbury woman with drug trafficking at Murphy’s Express convenience store following a disturbance call late Saturday night.
When a Salisbury Police officer arrived at the Freeland Drive gas station, they began talking with Jennifer Dawn Stamper.
Stamper yelled across the parking lot to another woman and the officer told her to calm down. Stamper told the officer she didn’t have her license with her, but she had an identification card.
The officer went to his patrol car to look up her name. Stamper began walking toward the back of the car. Stamper got into her car and attempted to drive away.
The officer reached for the keys and took her out of the car. Stamper was being stopped for obstruction. She was searched.
As the officer patted Stamper’s calf, he noticed she had her legs crossed. He uncrossed her legs and a plastic bag containing a number of pills fell out, said Capt. Shelia Lingle.
The report says Stamper had 14 hydrocodone pills, 17 clonazapam pills, an anti-anxiety medication; two oxycodones, and six carisoprodol, a muscle relaxer.
Stamper, 29, of 827 Glover Road, was charged with felony trafficking, three counts of possession of a scheduled III controlled substance and misdemeanor resist, delay, obstruct an officer.
Stamper was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $150,000 bond, where she remains.
See Tuesday’s Post for more details.
