A Marion duo was charged by deputies after a traffic stop uncovered meth, pot and paraphernalia, authorities said Wednesday.
Deputy David Jones of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Christy Leigh Beaver, 41, of 49 Meadow Ridge Drive in Marion, with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a Schedule III controlled substance, possession of up to ½ ounce marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He also charged Arlie K. Davis, 45, of 316 Hidden Cove Drive in Marion, with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 19, Jones stopped a vehicle on Sugar Hill Road for a revoked tag. Davis was driving, and Beaver was the passenger.
A search of the vehicle yielded multiple items of drug paraphernalia, and, upon looking in Beaver’s purse, officers located more paraphernalia, .3 gram of methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana and two Suboxone tablets.
Beaver’s bond was set at $11,000.
Davis was issued a citation. A photo of him was not available.
