Carroll County Sheriff’s Reports


Drug Possession — Ramona Kay Hendon, 52, of 529 Ledsinger Road, Huntingdon, was charged with possession of schedule II (methamphetamine) and drug paraphernalia during a June 16 traffic stop in Cedar Grove.

Deputy Chance Townes reported he pulled over a black Saturn driven by Hendon on Highway 220 due to the vehicle having the wrong registration plate. Townes noted Hendon continued to drive for a suspiciously long time before pulling over. When asked for her license, Hendon told Townes it was revoked for DUI, and a computer check confirmed this. Townes noticed Hendon was acting nervously, and when asked if she had any narcotics, Hendon said yes and handed the deputy a syringe and two bags containing a combined total of approximately five grams of methamphetamine that she had concealed in her clothing.

Drug Possession — Michael Avery Jr., 53, of 1805 Kirk Road, Huntingdon, was cited for possession of schedule IV and drug paraphernalia during a June 21 traffic stop in Cedar Grove.

Deputy Dakota Meier reported he pulled over a black Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Avery because a tag light was out and he observed the vehicle cross over the yellow line. Avery told Meier he was driving home from work, though he seemed uncertain about what time he had gotten off work. A computer check showed that Avery’s license was not valid but eligible due to a failure to appear conviction out of Texas. Avery denied Meier’s request to search the vehicle, but the vehicle was searched after a K-9 dog indicated the presence of illegal substances. During the search, Meier found a needle, a homemade glass bong, a rubber tube with a glass pipe, and four Xanax pills.
