Amtrak stopped a train in Halifax County Monday due to a domestic onboard and the City County Drug Task Force cited one of the people involved.

Captain A.M. Harris said the conductor stopped the train around 7:30 p.m. in the area of Reeses Store Road.
Agent J.R, Matthews responded and seized marijuana from Elizabeth Cotrofeld, 55, of New York.
She was cited to court on June 21 for a North Carolina Uniform Citation for possession of marijuana up to one-half ounce and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
Neither the woman or the other person involved in the domestic were allowed back on the train, Harris said.
It was not clear what other travel arrangements were made following the citation.

Also on Monday, shortly before 7:15 p.m., Harris noticed a suspicious vehicle parked in the roadway on South Hamilton Street. He encountered a person identified as Angel Macias, 27, of Roanoke Rapids, rolling a blunt in the vehicle.
He cited Macias for possession of up to one-half ounce of marijuana and possession of marijuana paraphernalia. Additional marijuana and a grinder was found with assistance from agent D.R. Radford.
Court date is July 26.

During the search of the property, with assistance from canine Fino, marijuana and several items of drug paraphernalia were seized.
The items of paraphernalia were digital scales, a marijuana grinder, Cigarillos and a box of sandwich bags.
