Burlington woman charged with felony possession of meth


A traffic stop based on an expired license ended up with drug charges for the driver.

The drug charges began on Thursday September 1, 2022 when deputies with the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office Strike Team, along with other officers from Orange County Sheriff’s Office Strike Team were conducting saturation patrols in the city of Burlington.

A vehicle stop on Maple Avenue close to Harden Street was made based on a car displaying an expired registration plate. A K9 was utilized and gave a positive indication to the odor of narcotics.

The driver of the vehicle was in possession of a pocketbook that contained methamphetamine; Suboxone pills and strips; and drug paraphernalia.
