The Sheriff’s Office said a deputy stopped a vehicle carrying methamphetamine Thursday morning along U.S. 321.
Officers charged the driver, Paula Shrewsbury Rudisill, 42, of 4197 Kent Street in Maiden, with multiple drug charges.
According to a report, Deputy J. Robbins stopped her vehicle around 2:15 a.m. near Exit 24 when he noticed the light on her license plate had burned out.
Robbins searched the vehicle after he located a bottle of Hydrocodone not prescribed to Rudisill, the report said.
A white powdery substance and crystal-like substance were seized from bags stuffed inside the pocket of the driver’s side door and other places throughout the vehicle, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies later tested the bags’ contents and determined they contained methamphetamine.
Robbins additionally seized $500 in cash from the vehicle.
Rudisill, who remains in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $20,000 secured bond, faces one felony each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance and maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance. She was also charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
