Waffle House argument leads to drug arrest for Salisbury pair

SALISBURY – An argument outside a Salisbury Waffle House led to the arrest of two people on drug possession charges, the Salisbury Police Department said.

Police charged Adam Montgomery Reeder, 20, of the 4900 block of Millbridge Road, with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance Schedule II and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Dystanie Yolanda Richard, 21, of the 500 block of Kern Carlton Road, was charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance Schedule IV and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Officers responded Tuesday to the restaurant, at 932 S. Jake Alexander Blvd., about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday after a call about a suspicious vehicle in the parking lot. The caller told authorities two people were in the vehicle and they appeared to be arguing.

Reeder was in the back seat of the Hyundai Elantra. An officer asked him to step out of the vehicle and when he did, the officer saw a hypodermic needle sticking out of his pocket. Reeder told the officer he had two hydrocodone pills that belonged to his dad.

Police searched the vehicle and found a tackle box with clonazepam, a prescription medication, inside.

Both Reeder and Richard remain in the Rowan County Detention Center, each under a $1,000 secured bond.
