Deputies: Woman caught with drugs


ROCKINGHAM — A woman already facing felony drug charges recently picked up three additional misdemeanors.

According to a magistrate’s order, 22-year-old Lindsay Blake Polston was arrested Monday after Deputy Danteaus Williams of the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office found drugs and paraphernalia on her.

Polston, of Dockery Road, Rockingham, was allegedly in possession of spoons, needles, wrappers, a grinder and an unspecified amount of marijuana — as well as a stolen license plate.

She was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, simple possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance and possession of stolen goods or property and booked into the Richmond County Jail under a $1,000 secured bond. As of 3:10 Tuesday afternoon, she was still in jail.

Any amount of marijuana more than half an ounce is a felony in North Carolina, less than a half-ounce is a misdemeanor.

Polston was arrested on Jan. 20 for allegedly selling meth to deputies.

Online court records show Polston is currently facing two felony counts each of selling methamphetamine, delivering methamphetamine and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver methamphetamine.

According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction, she has no criminal convictions in North Carolina.
