Staff report

KANNAPOLIS — Lisa Marie Sheets, 33, of the 900 block of Oakwood Avenue, Kannapolis, was charged Sunday with felony possession of methamphetamine and felony possession of a controlled substance on jail premises. Arrest warrants say she was in possession of crystal meth in the Rowan County Detention Center.

She was arrested Sunday after a Rockwell police officer stopped Sheets because she was driving 100 mph in a 55-mph zone on N.C. 152, according to authorities.

Sheets also had a misdemeanor warrant for her arrest in Cabarrus County for misdemeanor resisting or obstructing an officer; driving while license revoked; failure to heed lights and siren; and misdemeanor assault on a government official.

According to warrants, that incident occurred July 22 and involved a Concord police officer. Warrants said the officer tried to stop Sheets and she pushed the officer out of her car and drove away.

Sheets was charged with a failure to appear in Cabarrus County court on charges of failure to wear a seat belt and driving while license revoked. She was also charged with felony fleeing to elude arrest.

Sheets, who is also known as Lisa Carol Sheets and Marie Sheets, remains in the county jail under a $33,000.01 secured bond.
