Two charged with drug possession in Rome traffic stop

Posted

ROME — A driver and passenger were both charged with drug possession after methamphetamine was found during a traffic stop on West Dominick Street very early Thursday morning, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police said Kathy M. Gavin, 45, of North Carolina, was pulled over in the 400 block of W. Dominick St. around 1:15 a.m. Thursday for several vehicle violations, including a suspicious, temporary North Carolina license plate. Once stopped, police said the temporary license was found to be fraudulent, and Gavin was found to be driving on a revoked New York State driver's license.

Passenger Courtney D. Glidewell, 26, of Rome, had a suspended license, police said, and therefore could not take the vehicle, so it was searched and towed.

A quantity of methamphetamine and other narcotics were found in the vehicle, authorities stated.

Gavin is charged with two counts of seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance and Glidewell is charged with one count of seventh-degree possession, police said. Gavin is additionally charged with one count each of third-degree possession of a forged instrument and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, as well as several vehicle and traffic violations, police stated.

They are both scheduled to appear in Rome City Court.
