Two face charges in Sharp County

Charges were filed against a Jonesboro woman and a Lake City woman in Sharp County Feb. 14 after drugs and other items of paraphernalia were found in their possession.

According to a report, Officer Casey Poulette imitated a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Irene Opp, 64 near Backbone Road.

During the stop, Poulette could smell an odor coming from the vehicle and asked Opp if there were other occupants in the vehicle as the window tint was too dark to see inside.
