A Screven County traffic stop for speeding led to the arrest of two and multiple charges for reported drug possession.

On Friday, Oct. 1, Sylvania Police Officer Terry Kile conducted a traffic stop for speeding on Highway 17 at the city limits of Oliver.

Once Kile began questioning the driver and her passenger, his suspicions were raised, Screven County Sheriff’s Office Inv. Michael Duncan said. During a search of the two individuals, Duncan said Kile located a quart of marijuana on the driver. On the passenger, Duncan said he located numerous pills.

The driver, Nora Howard Neely, 48, of Bens Branch Road, Newington, was arrested and charged with speeding, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug-related objects. A charge of DUI of drugs, Duncan said is pending for Neely. The passenger, Allen Lee Brown, 35, of Railroad Avenue, Oliver, was arrested and charged with four counts possession of a controlled substance.

On Brown’s person, Duncan said Kile found Alprazolam (schedule IV drug), Carisopriodole (schedule IV), Hydrocodone (schedule III), and cocaine (schedule II). Brown was not offered bond because he was on probation at the time of arrest.
