Iredell Sheriff’s Office charges Cleveland woman with drug offenses

CLEVELAND — A Cleveland woman was charged Monday with possession of marijuana following a traffic stop by members of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team.

Petrina Lynn McDaniels, 37, of the 100 block of Bucks Run Court, was charged with misdemeanor possession of more than 1/2 ounce of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and speeding.

The incident occurred around 4:20 p.m. at Brawley Road in Cleveland. Authorities stopped the driver of a Honda who was traveling 62 mph in a 45 mph speed zone. An officer spoke with the driver, Jarquil Steward, who could not provide his driver’s license. He was issued a citation.

Officers searched the car because Steward, according to a statement, is a convicted felon and has a number of prior charges for drug possession. The officer asked Steward if he had anything illegal in the car and subsequently searched the vehicle.

Officers found 20 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia near passenger Petrina McDaniels. She is also a convicted felon with a history of prior drug possession charges, the statement said.

McDaniels is expected in court September 14.
