Blotter: Two charged at Brenner checkpoint

A China Grove man was charged with three drug-related crimes on Thursday after being stopped at a traffic checkpoint.

David Cap Simerson Jr., 31, of 275 Bost Road in China Grove, was charged with simple possession of a controlled substance, possession of a schedule one controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Simerson picked up the charges at a traffic stop on the corner of Brenner Avenue and Standish Street.

Salisbury Police Department spokeswoman Capt. Shelia Lingle said the traffic stop began with a female driver of Simerson’s car not having a valid drivers license. Simerson also allegedly didn’t have a valid license, Lingle said.

Lingle said police were given consent to search the vehicle by Simerson. Inside the car, police allegedly found a cigarette carton with two grams of crystal meth inside. Police also reportedly found 0.3 grams of marijuana in Simerson’s pocket along with a glass smoking pipe.

Simerson was placed under a $5,000 secured bond and booked into the Rowan County Detention Center.
