CORRECTED: Julie's nose helps find pot during traffic stop

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

CORRECTION: In Tuesday's jail intake listing, Nathan Todd Armstrong, 22, of Lee Road was incorrectly listed by Bedford County Jail as charged with violation of the sex offender registry.

He is NOT on the sex offender registry. The error was made by the jail, where a computer operator had intended to type the correct charge of violation of the vehicle registration law. The story below has been corrected.

Two small bags containing marijuana were found in a vehicle following a traffic stop Sunday on Whitthorne Street, police said.

Drug dog Julie was brought to the vehicle and alerted on the driver's side door, Sgt. Charles Merlo said. Julie was placed inside and alerted on the console, where officer Jody Shelton discovered the bags which weighed approximately 3.4 grams.

Charles DeJuan Mayes, 22, of Sanders Street was charged with possession of schedule VI for resale, running a stop sign and no driver's license/exhibited on demand. Mayes ran a stop sign at the intersection of Blue Ribbon Parkway and Perfection Drive as Merlo watched, his report said/


A purse containing $200 was stolen from an unlocked car in a Lane Parkway parking lot Saturday, police said.

Police were told $60 was taken from a wallet Sunday at a Landers Street apartment.
