A driver’s license checkpoint in Rowan County yielded an arrest for possession of methamphetamine and heroin Sunday.
The county sheriff’s office had set up a checkpoint at the intersection of Upper Palmer and Sides roads in Rockwell when a 2004 Dodge Ram pick-up truck rolled in just after midnight Sunday.
When the driver rolled down his window, deputies said they smelled marijuana. After searching the vehicle, the sheriff’s office found a black box stuck to the bottom of the driver’s seat with 4 grams of methamphetamine ice and a 10th of a gram of heroin, authorities said.
Jeremy Paul Bowers, 26, of Salisbury, was arrested and charged with possession of a Schedule I and Schedule II controlled substance.
