Deputies discover illegal drugs while investigating alleged threats


A report of some allegedly threatening communications has led to the arrest of an area woman on unrelated felony drug charges.

Samantha Louise Finger was taken into custody on Friday after local sheriff’s deputies visited her home at 1975 McKenzie Park Lane, Graham, in the course of their inquiry about the purported threats.

According to the office of Alamance County’s sheriff, the 45-year-old white female appeared “confused and unsteady” during her conversation with the deputies and reportedly acknowledged that she had a glass pipe inside her purse.

The deputies went on to search the premises, where they discovered methamphetamine, Suboxone, and items of drug paraphernalia. As a result, they charged Finger with felonies for the possession of methamphetamine, Suboxone and a Schedule II controlled substance as well as misdemeanors for the possession of a Schedule III substance and drug paraphernalia.
