Two people were arrested on drug charges Friday after a traffic stop in Alexandria by the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says 35 year old Chad Knowles of the Loop and 36 year old Vickie Cantrell of Adcock Cemetery Road are charged with possession of a schedule II controlled substance (dilaudid) with intent to sell and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance (valium).
According to Sheriff Ray, the two were pulled over in their vehicle on Highway 70 in Alexandria by county deputies. Upon further investigation, the officers found 47 K-4 dilaudid and 2 valiums in a hidden compartment of a Dr. Pepper soft drink can.
Bond for Cantrell is $53,500 and $78,500 for Knowles.
Knowles' bond is higher than Cantrell's because this offense occurred while he was free on bond in another case. Sheriff Ray says Knowles was arrested on November 10th on charges of felony evading arrest with a motor vehicle and driving on a revoked license (6th offense).
