The City County Drug Task Force reported the following, according to Captain A.M. Harris:

On Thursday shortly before 1 p.m., agents went to a residence on Melody Lane on the outskirts of Roanoke Rapids to follow up on a drug complaint.

Agents could smell the odor of marijuana inside the residence.

A search warrant was obtained by Agent D.R. Radford and agents seized marijuana, a smoking bong, a digital scale and Cigarillos.

Agent C.A. Parker arrested and charged Christine Everett, 32, of the residence, for resisting a public officer, possession of marijuana up to one-half ounce and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.  

She received a January 17 court date.

Medication take-back programs
