Drugs found on inmate
A woman arrested on a misdemeanor larceny charge now faces several felony drug charges because officials said they found at the jail that she had hidden pills in her clothes.
Regina Rae Bolick, 34, of Old North Road was arrested at Walmart on Blowing Rock Boulevard early Tuesday afternoon and charged larceny and second-degree trespass. While driving Bolick to the Caldwell County jail, the arresting officer noticed in his rear-view mirror that Bolick was fidgeting in the back seat, Lenoir Police Capt. Couby Stilwell said, and at the jail as Bolick was changing out of her street clothes into a jail jumpsuit, an assortment of pills -- Opana, methadone, Alprazolam and Diazepan -- and a small amount of methamphetamine and marijuana tumbled out of her clothing and underwear.
Bolick was charged with possession with intent to make, sell and deliver a Schedule II controlled substance, possession with intent to make, sell or deliver a Schedule IV controlled substance, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of a controlled substance on jail premises. Bolick also was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, larceny and second-degree trespass. Her bond was set at $102,000 secured.
