PAOLI — A Haysville man and an Orange County woman were formally charged last week with drug-related counts after an April 25 traffic stop in Paoli.
Dakota D. Sharp, 20, 1011 W. Haysville Road, Jasper, was a passenger in a SUV driven by Sierra L. Latimer, 22, Paoli, at the time of the 3:20 a.m. traffic stop in Paoli, according to the Paoli Police Department.
An officer followed the Latimer vehicle, which had an inoperable taillight, after observing unsafe driving and made contact with the occupants after watching the driver turn into a driveway off a county road near Paoli Peaks and turn its headlights off.
After noticing the odor of marijuana coming from Latimer, Sharp and two other vehicle occupants, police reported finding items of paraphernalia, marijuana, pills that were a Schedule III controlled substance and methamphetamine.
Sharp was formally charged last week in Orange County Circuit Court with Level 5 felony dealing methamphetamine, Level 6 felony possession of methamphetamine, and misdemeanor dealing in marijuana and possession of marijuana.
Latimer was charged with misdemeanor driving while suspended (prior), possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
