Pills discovered after traffic stop made for driver not wearing seatbelt

Rowan authorities stopped a Salisbury woman who wasn’t wearing her seatbelt and discovered she didn’t have a prescription for pills that were in her purse, officials said.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office issued a citation to Crystal Dawn Brady, 32, of the 100 block of Valley Drive, for misdemeanor possession of schedule II substance.
The stop occurred Tuesday in the 11000 block of Statesville Boulevard, Cleveland. The deputy saw the remnants of five marijuana cigarettes near the door handle of the car. Brady told the deputy she did not smoke marijuana, but her boyfriend did. The deputy asked about any other drugs in the car and Brady gave him a bag with six pills that she claimed were antibiotics. She had a pill bottle in her purse without a label that contained four pills that were identified as oxycodone. The officer noted the pills in the bag were in fact antibiotics.
