A Roanoke Rapids woman was charged with counts related to methamphetamine possession following a traffic stop Wednesday night.

Roanoke Rapids police Chief Bobby Martin said Officer C. Roberts was in the area of West Tenth Street around 9:45 p.m. when he noticed a vehicle with a lighting issue pass him.

Roberts recognized the driver, who was identified as 32-year-old Sarah Spivey.

Officer D. Harrison assisted and had his dog Borys perform a free air sniff of the vehicle. The canine alerted officers to the possible presence of narcotics.

The officers located a needle, glass pipe and .39 grams of possible meth.

Spivey was charged with possession of schedule I, maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, and four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia for the number of items found. She was also cited for a headlight violation.

She received a $3,000 bond and July 28 court date.
