Two individuals have been arrested on drug charges in Orange County after being found asleep in their rental car.
Authorities say Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a complaint about a suspicious vehicle at Mebane Lumber Company around seven o’clock Friday morning. Two people were asleep inside the vehicle, according to a release, and the deputies “noticed the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle.”
The subsequent search of the car led to the seizure of four ounces of suspected methamphetamine, according to law enforcement officials.
Authorities say 27-year-old Richard Trevon Hill, of Georgia, and 35-year-old Kelly Nicole Long, of Roxboro, North Carolina, were arrested at the scene. The two have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine by possession and transport, conspire to traffic methamphetamine, possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver a schedule II controlled substance, possession of less than a half ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both suspects are being held in the Orange County Detention Center as of last update under $500,000 bonds.
