SALISBURY — A Statesville woman who was wanted on an active warrant for failure to appear in court was found with heroin in her purse. The woman was brought into the Rowan County Magistrate’s Office by a local bail bondsman.

According to a report, Bradshaw’s Bail Bonds brought the woman, Amanda Kimber McKinney, into the magistrate’s office where a deputy served the warrant. She’d been picked up in Concord by owner Phil Bradshaw.

McKinney told them she had narcotics and a syringe in her bag. A deputy found a syringe, 0.5 grams of heroin and a burnt spoon.

McKinney, 27, of the 200 block of Bowman Road, was charged with felony possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia. She remains in the county jail under a total $9,500 secured bond.

She has a pending 2016 misdemeanor larceny case in Rowan County and a 2015 Lincoln County case for misdemeanor marijuana possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.
