A Denver woman found herself behind bars Thursday night after county narcotics officers said they uncovered a stash of cocaine and marijuana inside her residence.

Deputies arrested Summer Demetrius Jones, 32, of 7046 Campground Road, around 9 p.m.

They said they learned where the suspect had been keeping the illegal substances after conducting multiple surveillance operations and undercover buys on Campground Road.

The purchases gave narcotics investigators enough evidence to secure a search warrant for the woman’s home, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said.

While scouring the residence, deputies located a non-trafficking amount of crack cocaine and marijuana along with $2,000 in cash, according to an agency press release.

Jones was placed in the county jail under a $45,000 secured bond.

Her bond more than doubled following a first court appearance Friday morning.

Charges against her include one felony count each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule VI controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance.

Deputies have filed an additional misdemeanor charge against her for possessing drug paraphernalia. They also issued her warrants for similar actions in 2011, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The warrants contained charges for two felony counts each of selling and delivering cocaine and possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine.

In May 2008, Jones was released from prison following a 16-month stay for drug-related charges in the county, the North Carolina Department of Correction website said.

She also maintains a misdemeanor larceny offense on her record from Iredell County in 2006.

Jones remains under a $100,000 secured bond.
