A Littleton woman was charged Sunday on cocaine counts following a traffic stop, the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office reports.

Chief Deputy Scott Hall said in a statement the stop occurred shortly after 1:30 p.m. when Deputy Brandon Council stopped a vehicle for a stop sign violation at Highway 158 near Church Street in Roanoke Rapids.

Council identified the driver as Amy Marie Latham, 44.

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of powder cocaine and a cut straw with cocaine residue inside it.

Latham was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to stop for a stop sign.

She also had an outstanding order for arrest for failure to appear in court.

She received a November 15 court date and $2,000 secured bond.

Corporal Dustin Newsome and his dog, Duri, assisted in the arrest.
