SALISBURY — Police charged a Salisbury couple Friday night after officers said they found oxymorphone tablets hidden in their child’s diaper bag.
Sean Belk, 26, and Cassie Trexler, 22, were arrested in the parking lot of Sheetz on Old Concord Road about 10 p.m., according to a Salisbury Police report.
The license tag on their car didn’t match the vehicle’s registration, police said, prompting the stop.
A 6-month-old child was in the backseat, officers said. Inside a diaper bag, officers found a pill bottle with 13 tablets of oxymorphone.
The pills were separated from other prescription pills inside the bottle by a paper towel, the report said.
Both were charged with felony possession of narcotics.
Belk, of Castor Road, was released after posting a $100,000 bond. Trexler, of Castle Drive, was released after posting a $1,000 bond.
Belk was arrested in March after authorities said he manufactured methamphetamine in a home on Ed Weaver Road.
He was charged with felony manufacturing meth, felony possession of meth, felony maintaining a dwelling for storing drugs and resisting arrest.
Belk also faces a charge of felony obtaining property by false pretense in Cabarrus County in a separate incident.
