SALISBURY — A couple was arrested on drug trafficking charges after Rowan County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about a drug overdose.
Deputy L.H. Eller responded to a Wakefield Drive home on the call.
Amy Marie Arnette, 20, began having seizures at her mother’s home. Arnette was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
She eventually told authorities she’d gone to a home in Kannapolis where she consumed heroin. Arnette had apparently told her mother she was going to see about one of her children, who was in the custody of a grandparent and living in Kannapolis.
Warrants were issued for Arnette’s arrest stemming from Cabarrus County. Her husband, Kevin Neal Arnette, 23, was also charged and arrested.
Amy Arnette was arrested Tuesday and charged with conspiring to traffic in opium, maintaining a dwelling/vehicle for controlled substances and possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule I controlled substance, all felonies.
Kevin Arnette was arrested Monday and charged with conspiring to traffic in opium, maintaining a dwelling/vehicle for controlled substances and possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, all felonies.
Both have since been released from jail, each under a $50,000 bond.
