Two Friday night traffic stops by sheriff’s deputies landed three people in the Marion County Jail for alleged possession of methamphetamine.
According to reports, 26-year-old Onnica Wimberly, of Salem, was stopped at North Broadway and Senneff Street in Salem.
The county K-9 unit was called to the scene and the dog alerted on the vehicle, resulting in a search that reportedly revealed a tube and an electronic scale that both held residue that field tested positive as meth.
As Wimberly was being searched she reportedly told deputies she had a baggie under her clothing that held three other baggies containing meth.
The product reportedly weighed just less than 20 grams and Wimberly allegedly told deputies that her passenger, 35-year-old Jaime Charlton, of Kell, gave her the meth to hold but Charlton denied any knowledge of the meth.
Both Wimberly and Charlton were taken to the Marion County Jail for alleged possession of between 15 and 100 grams of meth and aggravated meth delivery.
–In a separate traffic stop, 46-year-old Darin King, of Centralia, was arrested for alleged possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia after the county K9 alerted on his vehicle during a traffic stop at North College and Alley Street.
A subsequent search of the vehicle reportedly revealed a glass pipe in the center console of the vehicle that allegedly contained a residue that tested positive for meth.
All three remained in the Marion County Jail Sunday night.
