ROCKWELL — Authorities cited a man and woman on drug and weapons charges after a deputy stopped the driver, who had a revoked license.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office issued a citation to Jerry Glenn Pratt, 38, for misdemeanor simple possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and driving while license revoked.
Rindy Michelle Branham, 36, was cited for misdemeanor possession of a concealed weapon.
Both were released from custody.
According to a report, the traffic stop occurred about 9:30 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of Food Lion, 968 Main St. at U.S. 52. A deputy checked the vehicle while it was parked at a BP gas station and discovered that Pratt was driving with a revoked license. The officer stopped the vehicle, which was leaving the store.

The deputy found Pratt in possession of two Clonazepam pills wrapped inside a cylinder.
Branham was searched by a female deputy. Metallic knuckles were hidden inside the pocket of her hooded sweatshirt, a report said.
