Deputy Jared Cody of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Sarah Jean Shook, 24, of East Crawford Street in Old Fort, with possession of methamphetamine.

Cody stopped a vehicle on Veterans Drive at 1:56 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 2 because the tag was expired. Shook was the passenger, according to a news release.
