SALISBURY — A High Point man faces felony drug possession charges after he was stopped during a speed enforcement campaign on Interstate 85.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Bryant Keith McCall, 48, of the 300 block of Ardale Drive, with two counts of felony possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance schedule II, one count felony possession of a controlled substance on penal premises, and misdemeanor failure to appear in Guilford County.

He was also given a citation for speeding and driving while license revoked.

According to a department report, the N.C. State Highway Patrol initially clocked McCall traveling 91 mph in a 70 mph zone. A Rowan County deputy caught up to a white Toyota with a Pennsylvania license plate.

The driver told the deputy he didn’t have his license and the car was a rental. The man told the deputy he was speeding because he needed to use the bathroom. The officer noted in his report that McCall, whom he had stopped at Webb Road, had already passed several exits where he could’ve used the restroom, according to a report.

McCall admitted that his license was suspended. The officer was able to determine McCall’s license was permanently suspended. When asked where he was going, McCall told the officer he was headed to a cookout of an ex-girlfriend.

A report said the officer discovered an outstanding warrant from Guilford County and arrested McCall. The vehicle was towed and searched. The officer found a plastic bag that contained several smaller bags with a white substance believed to be cocaine on McCall.

In an interview with the officer, McCall admitted the drugs that were cocaine and methamphetamine, both of which were laced with fentanyl and glutamine. He admitted he stuffed the drugs down his pants when he was pulled over. According to the report, McCall admitted he was going to sell the drugs in High Point.

He was issued an $8,000 secured bond.
