LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A traffic stop of a vehicle traveling Highway 150 West has led to the arrest of a passenger in the vehicle on outstanding warrants.

On March 29, 2021 around 3 a.m. Deputy T. Springs was traveling behind a red SUV with a valid license plate but the registered owner of the vehicle did not have a valid driver’s license. The officers stopped the vehicle near the intersection of Highway 150 West and Old Lincolnton Crouse Road.

The driver of the car produced a valid driver’s license but a passenger in the vehicle gave officers a fictitious name. Cynthia Diane Chavis, 22, of Dave Heafner Road, Crouse, NC gave officers another name and produced identification for that person. One deputy recognized the individual and a check by the Lincoln County Communications Center revealed she was wanted on outstanding warrants in Cleveland and Gaston Counties.

Lincoln County deputies charged the woman with felony identity theft and misdemeanor resisting a public officer and false information to an officer. She was also served with outstanding warrants for larceny, driving while license revoked, financial identity fraud, larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen motor vehicle, displaying an expired registration plate, no liability insurance, possession of stolen goods and conspiracy.

She was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $27,500 secured bond. She was also ordered held for Cleveland County authorities.
