A man and woman wanted for outstanding warrants were arrested after a traffic stop, according to information from a news advisory from Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields.
“On June 24, 2022, Deputies with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop in the 300 block of McReynolds Street in Carthage,” said Fields.
Law enforcement confiscated methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and marijuana paraphernalia after searching the vehicle.
Arrested were Jason Caviness, 47, of Robbins, and Shanna Locks, 42, of Carthage.
The suspects were each charged with felony possession of schedule II controlled substance, simple possession of schedule VI controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
The suspects also had outstanding warrants for their arrests out of Moore County, but Fields did not state why the arrest warrants were issued.
They were placed in the Moore County Detention Center under $5,000 secured bonds for drug charges.
Caviness was also given a $5,000 secured bond for an outstanding warrant, and Locks was also placed under a $25,000 secured bond for an outstanding warrant.
Both are due in court on July 13 and are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
