WOODLEAF — A Woodleaf pair were charged a week ago with methamphetamine possession and child abuse after someone called to say they were physically fighting in the front yard, according to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Shannon Renee Caraway, 31, and Daniel Earl Keith, 38, both of the 200 block of Kenway Drive, each with misdemeanor child abuse and felony possession of a controlled substance Schedule II.

Someone called on April 8 before 9 a.m. to say that the two were fighting.

According to the report, Caraway was sitting inside a vehicle when the deputies walked up to the residence. She immediately told the deputies she was fine and there was no fight.

The deputies went into the home to speak with Keith, who was reluctant to speak to the officers. One deputy looked down and saw a small Ziploc bag at Keith’s feet. The bag contained what the deputy believed to be meth. Another plastic bag was found on the floor between a fish tank and a couch.

The deputies went outside to speak with Caraway. She became emotional and admitted that she and Keith had argued. She told the officers the drugs belonged to friends who were over at their home the other night.

The officers noted the drugs were accessible to the couple’s younger children who are four and seven. The deputy contacted Rowan County DSS and placed the pair under arrest.

Caraway was issued a written promise to appear in court and Keith received a $1,000 secured bond.
