Police say a Mocksville woman was charged with possession of crystal methamphetamine Monday following a traffic stop.

Jennifer Alicia Carter, 32, also known as Jennifer Alicia Reid, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance schedule I (meth), misdemeanor simple possession of schedule IV controlled substance, two counts of felony obtaining property by false pretenses, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor driving while license revoked.

A Salisbury Police officer stopped a Nissan Maxima traveling in the 2300 block of West Innes Street and Lantz Avenue, not far from Catawba College, around 2:30 p.m. The driver, later identified as Jennifer Carter, had a license that was revoked.

Upon searching her and the vehicle, the officer discovered 1 gram of crystal meth in her front pocket, one and a half Xanax pills inside an ibuprofen bottle, and a spoon inside her purse.

Authorities said Carter used someone else’s ID to obtain Sudafed from Walmart.

She has since been released from the Rowan County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond.

Carter was convicted of driving while license revoked, common law robbery, credit card theft and violating the school attendance law.
