A Salisbury man attempted to run from authorities Friday night, police say, after officers stopped a vehicle containing drugs at the intersection of Grim Street and Old Wilkesboro Road.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Deanna Scott and Robin Otto Worth Jr. were arrested when police stopped their 2005 Nissan Altima just after 9 p.m.
Salisbury Police said Worth, 27, bailed from the car first, followed by another unidentified male. As police were calling out descriptions of the men, Scott opened the door and was ordered to stay in the vehicle. Worth was arrested shortly after by Salisbury Police.
After restraining Scott and Worth, authorities found a Titan handgun, an open container of vodka, .15 ounces of individually packaged marijuana, metallic knuckles and a concealed knife in Scott’s possession, the report said.
When officers searched Worth, according to the report, they found an additional .35 ounces of marijuana, along with a bag of white powder and 10 crack cocaine rocks.
The unidentified male was not captured by police.
Scott, of 113 Pearl St., was charged with resisting a public officer, carrying a concealed handgun, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana and felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and distribute marijuana.
Worth, of 2170 Grubb Ferry Road, was charged with felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and distribute cocaine, possession of marijuana and resisting a public officer.
Scott and Worth were released from jail after each posting a $10,000 bond.
Worth is scheduled to be in court several times in the coming months for 18 Rowan County charges, five of which are listed as felonies.
