Arrest warrant served after drugs turn up at traffic stop

Authorities served an arrest warrant on a China Grove man this week after they said he was found with various drugs at a license checkpoint in March.
James Andrew Brawley, 22, of 150 McField Drive, was charged Tuesday with possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of possession of a schedule II drug (pills) and possession of marijuana.
The stop occurred in March in the 5600 block of Tuckaseegee Road in Rowan County. A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office deputy and searched his vehicle, finding a glass pipe and a pill on the passenger’s seat, a report said.
Upon further search, deputies found a Tylenol bottle in the center console that contained four morphine pills and a straw with a white powder substance. Also in the vehicle was 2 grams of marijuana and rolling papers, the report said.
Authorities believe the straw was used to snort crushed morphine pills, Sheriff’s Office Capt. John Sifford said.
Brawley was released from the county jail after posting $2,000 bond.
