Blotter: Woman charged with drug crimes

SALISBURY — A 37-year-old woman faces drug charges after police were called to a McDonalds’s parking lot on Peeler Road Tuesday.

Lisa Amanda Threatte of Salisbury was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of a schedule four controlled substance, misdemeanor possession of a schedule two controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was found in the parking lot at 1105 Peeler Road — the location of a McDonalds and Love’s Travel Stop.

An initial call stated that a woman in the parking lot appeared to be hungover, and Rowan Sheriff’s Office deputies found Threatte hanging out of a car, Maj. John Sifford said.

After some discussion, deputies searched her vehicle and allegedly found a number of items, including bags containing methamphetamine, pills determined to be oxycodone and alprazolam, hypodermic needles, a smoking pipe and digital scales.

Threatte was booked into the Rowan County Detention Center with a $2,000 bond.
