HILLSVILLE — A 47-year-old woman faces illegal drug charges after a Carroll deputy found methamphetamine in a traffic stop June 16, according to Sheriff Warren Manning.
The sheriff reports that Sgt. Bobby Lyons pulled over a 2002 Jeep Liberty on Raindrop Road for reckless driving.
The traffic stop near Snake Creek Road led to a search of the vehicle.
While Deputy Glenn Edmonds assisted, Lyons found a quarter ounce of methamphetamine, a firearm and several hundred dollars in cash inside the vehicle.
As a result, Lyons charged driver Celia Mae Edwards with distribution of meth, possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm while in possession of meth and possession of a schedule IV drug, Manning said.
Edwards was held without bond awaiting a court appearance at the New River Valley Regional Jail.
