On March 15, a deputy was at the Pilot gas station on Peeler Road when he said he witnessed Honeycutt involved in a drug transaction. When the deputy approached Honeycutt, she admitted to having heroin and methamphetamine. The deputy was familiar with Honeycutt because of prior drug use, authorities said.

After buying some items at the store, Honeycutt moved near an air pump and a Honda pulled in front of her vehicle.

The officer approached Honeycutt, and she began to walk away. She stopped and handed him a plastic bag that she had been carrying in her pants.

After an investigation, Honeycutt was arrested April 3. She remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $29,000 secured bond.

She was additionally charged with failure to appear in court; misdemeanor child abuse; and maintaining a vehicle for trafficking in controlled substances.

Authorities are looking for Coleman Ray Buckwell, 30, of the 500 block of Gold Hill Drive, on warrants for maintaining a vehicle for trafficking in controlled substances; conspiring to sell and deliver a Schedule I substance; and conspiring to sell and deliver a Schedule II controlled substance.

Also wanted is Aaron Eugene Mothershead, 29, of the 100 block of Knights Place, on warrants for possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver methamphetamine; possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver heroin; and selling and delivering a Schedule II controlled substance.
