LINCOLNTON -- Three Catawba County residents face felony drug charges after being arrested Sunday evening in Lincoln County, in a case that started with a traffic stop, authorities say.
Lincoln County Sheriff’s officials say one of their deputies pulled over a vehicle about 9 p.m. on northbound U.S. 321 near the High Shoals effort because, the deputy said, the driver did not dim his headlights for the traffic in front of her.
When the driver got out of the vehicle, the deputy said he smelled a strong odor of marijuana. The driver gave the deputy permission to check the vehicle, and authorities say the deputy found a plastic bag containing 15 grams of crack cocaine, a bag with 2 grams of marijuana, and red digital scales covered with a white powder. Two of those in the car were carrying large amounts of cash, authorities say.
The driver, Stephanie Rashell Woods, 23, of Hickory, was charged with two felonies -- maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, and conspiracy to sell and deliver a controlled substance.
Quentin Marcel Campbell, 25, of Hickory was charged with a felony, conspiracy to sell and deliver a controlled substance, and a drug-related misdemeanor. And Dominic Allen Campbell, 27, of Newton, was charged with two felonies -- conspiracy to sell and deliver cocaine, and possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver cocaine -- and a marijuana misdemeanor.
