A homeless woman was arrested and charged after a traffic stop by deputies uncovered less than half a gram of meth and paraphernalia, according to reports.
Deputy Jason Quinn of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Sarah Elizabeth Joyner, 34, who is listed as homeless, with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
At 12:15 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 25, Quinn stopped a vehicle driven by Joyner on U.S. 70 West for no insurance. The deputy then learned that Joyner had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court.
A subsequent search of the automobile turned up .44 gram of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Joyner’s bond was set at $15,000.
