Driving without plates leads to drug trafficking charges
Man, woman charged after drugs found during traffic stop
A man and a woman are charged with drug trafficking after police found drugs during a traffic stop on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old woman behind the wheel and the 35-year-old man with her were detained when police noticed a can of pepper spray in the vehicle after pulling them over on Henderson Highway for driving without licence plates.
Officers then found roughly $3,000 worth of fentanyl, a small amount of meth and pot, more than $4,000 in cash, drug paraphernalia and other weapons during a further search of the vehicle, they said.
The man and woman face a list of charges including possession of a weapon and possession of a scheduled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
