An Old Fort man and two Union Mills women were charged after a traffic stop uncovered pot, cocaine, pills and THC-laced candy bars and drinks, authorities said Monday.

Deputy Robert Watson of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged 39-year-old Randall Eugene Greenlee, address listed as Chinquapin Trail in Old Fort, and 32-year-old Crystal Marie Real, address listed as Cove Road in Union Mills, with two counts of possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance and one count each of possession of cocaine, possession of synthetic cannabinoid, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession of marijuana.

Watson also charged 36-year-old Vanessa Real Johnson, address listed as Cove Road in Union Mills, with possession of marijuana, resisting a public officer and failure to appear.

Shortly after 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20, Watson stopped a Chrysler New Yorker in Old Fort for having a fictitious plate. Real was driving, and the other two were passengers.

Johnson gave the deputy a fictitious name, and, upon determining her true identity, found that she was wanted in McDowell, Davis and Guilford counties for failure to appear.

A subsequent search of the car by Watson and Old Fort police officers revealed 1.10 grams of marijuana, 1 gram of cocaine, 6 ½ various pills, three candy bars containing THC and two drinks containing THC.

Greenlee’s and Real’s bonds were each set at $23,000. Johnson’s bond was set at $12,000.
