Corporal D. Harrison was patrolling the Roanoke Rapids area of Highway 158 Sunday when he witnessed a passing violation. 

He initiated a traffic stop and encountered the driver, Kayla Brown, 22 of Charlotte.

A search of the vehicle yielded 8.4 grams of mushrooms.

On Saturday deputies and officers with the Weldon Police Department conducted a driver’s license checking station on Country Club Road and College Drive.

As Edmondson stepped out of the vehicle, Snider noticed an open container of alcohol between the seats. Further investigation led to a search of the vehicle where Snider located a gram of crack cocaine in Edmondson’s cigarette holder as well as drug paraphernalia within the vehicle.

Snider arrested and charged Edmondson with felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while license revoked.

She received a $5,000 secured bond and November 30 court date.
