Two persons face various drug–related charges, including possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug related items, after a Madison Police Department officer made a traffic stop on Main Street last Monday. According to reports, Curtis Lee Young, 34, Greensboro and Whitney Nicole Brock, 27, Madison were both arrested after a vehicle they were passengers in was stopped in the Main Street Pantry parking lot for no insurance.
Consequent to the stop, reports state, an officer was approached by a man in the parking lot who stated that he had observed someone in the vehicle throw a plastic container out of the passenger’s window prior to the stop. The container was located on the ground and, reports allege, it contained suspected methamphetamine.
Young was in the front passenger seat of the vehicle at the time of the stop and Brock was seated behind him. Both denied knowledge of the container or the suspected methamphetamine. A passenger in the back driver’s side allegedly told officers that “the dude up front” threw the container out the window. Brock challenged the officer, reports state, by stating that the officer was lying regarding the container “because (the officer) had not found meth on her person and that she knew (the officer) had not personally seen anything thrown out the window.”
A search of the vehicle revealed a plastic bag under the rear passenger seat that contained a pipe suspected to be used for smoking methamphetamine.
While Brock was being processed at the Morgan County Detention Center, officers allegedly found a smoking pipe with suspected residue, a small glass bulb with a cork top with white crystalline residue inside, a rag and several counterfeit bills in a body orifice. Detention officers also allegedly found more counterfeit bills inside Brock’s bra.
Brock was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug related objects and crossing the guard line with contraband. Young was charged with possession of methamphetamine and obstruction.
