McKenzie Police Department arrested a McKenzie woman and a Sharon man for drugs after a traffic stop on a moped on June 8 around 4:19 p.m.
Patrolman Dalton Raspberry and Patrolman Coleman and Patrolman Dennett initiated the stop of the moped, which Gearin was driving. A check of his license revealed a suspended status.
A search of a backpack with the two subjects revealed 3.3 ounces of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, THC wax-style paraphernalia, another baggie with 14.3 grams of marijuana, approximately 14 ‘hits’ of LSD, a package of THC cartridges, three 3.5 grans of psilocybin mushroom-infused chocolate bars, a digital scale, multiple torch lighters, a fake driver’s license with the name David South, $1,249 in a wallet. In a purse was Ms. Jamie Carter’s license, two packs of vape cartridges, watermelon THC-baked bars, torch lighter, grinder with marijuana residue, and vape pens.
Once at jail, Ms. Carter stated she dropped her pack of cigarettes in the floor. Nearby was a clear baggie with approximately .5 grams of marijuana and two green pills.
Gearin was charged with driving on a suspended license, violation of financial responsibility, expired registration, possession of schedule I (LSD), possession of meth, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Ms. Carter was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of meth, contraband in a penal facility, possession of drug paraphernalia.
Ms. Carter had previously pled guilty to domestic assault and theft and failed to report to jail to start her 11-month sentence. She is ineligible for bond on the new charges.
