Traffic Stop in Roachdale Leads to Arrest

The driver was asked to stand outside the vehicle where he made a call to his mother. Roachdale Deputy Thompson was nearby, assisting Richardson, when he heard the driver’s call to his mother. The driver stated the officers found the pipe, not the marijuana in the vehicle and they had not found what was in his wallet. Further search was initiated upon hearing this call. The marijuana was located inside the vehicle and methamphetamine located inside a folded $20 bill, in the driver’s wallet. The vehicle was impounded and the driver arrested. There have been no names released as of yet.
