Locals face drug charges
ROWLAND
Three Nashville residents were arrested for drugs after a traffic stop last week.

According to the Nash County Sheriff’s Office, a vehicle stop was conducted at the on-ramp to Highway 64 near Nashville on Tuesday, March 12. During the stop, deputies detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle and received permission to search the vehicle.

During the search, around three grams of marijuana was found inside the pocketbook of 16-year-old Alexis Cole. Cole was a passenger in the backseat of the vehicle.

Cole was charged with simple possession of marijuana. She was placed in Nash County Jail under a $1,000 bond.

After Nash County Sheriff’s K-9 Deca indicated more narcotics inside the car, deputies asked all five subjects to exit the vehicle.

During a search of the grass area where the subjects were standing, 60.5 grams of marijuana was located.

Patrick Logan Roberson, 25, and Amber Rowland, 19, were charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and felony possession.

Because Roberson was driving, he was charged with maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance.

Roberson was placed in Nash County Jail under a $15,000 secured bond. Rowland was placed in Nash County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond.

Cole, Roberson and Rowland all have a 2573 Wintergreen Road, Nashville address. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Roberson and Rowland are a  couple.

The arrests were part of a joint investigation between the Nash County Sheriff’s Office and Rocky Mount Police Department.
