Drug Arrests
Traffic stop leads to drug charges

Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office has reported two sets of arrests related to illegal drugs--one of them the result of a lengthy investigation and the other the result of a traffic stop.

The traffic stop occurred around 12:30 AM Wednesday morning (April 28th).

Deputies were observing traffic in the 3500 block of NC 27 east when they saw a vehicle pass by that had a burned out driver’s side headlight. Officers activated their emergency equipment and stopped the vehicle a short distance away.

The male driver, Brandon Chad Ayers, 34, of River Road, Lincolnton, told deputies he did not have a valid driver’s license. The vehicle was also occupied by Sara Lynn Reames, 36, of Coulwood Drive, Charlotte. The driver was asked to step out of the vehicle and at that time deputies observed an orange needle cap for a syringe giving them probable cause to search the vehicle.

Their search turned up methamphetamine, Xanax, heroin, Adderall and other narcotics and two meth pipes.

Brandon Chad Ayers, 34, was charged with possession of heroin, possession of a controlled Schedule III substance, driving while his license was revoked, displaying a fictitious license plate and possession of drug paraphernalia. Ayers was taken before a magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $13,000 secured bond.

Sara Lynn Reames, 36, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of a controlled Schedule III substance, possession of a controlled Schedule IV substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Reames was jailed under a $12,000 secured bond.
