UNEEDA — A Uneeda man and a Huntington woman were charged on Nov. 7 with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver after a traffic stop yielded a substantial amount of the drug, according to an incident report.
Daniel Ray Burnette, 27, of Uneeda, and Whitney Faith McMillion, 24, were charged after a wellness check by Deputies CT Daniels and Robert B. Dotson on Route 85 near Uneeda.
The report states that the officers pulled up behind the car to make sure that the occupants weren’t stranded motorists.
According to the report, the driver, Burnette was “fidgety and nervous” when approached by the officers. Burnette communicated when asked for identification, registration and proof of insurance that his license was revoked.
Burnette was asked to exit the vehicle and the passenger, McMillion, allegedly told officers that she was unlawfully in possession of muscle relaxers; however, after further investigation, the officers determined that they weren’t controlled substances but were a prescription.
When McMillion exited the vehicle, marijuana rolled off of her lap and onto the ground, according to the report. The officers discovered a “large amount” of marijuana on the driver’s side floorboard of the vehicle, they wrote in the report.
McMillion told officers that the accused had just obtained the marijuana and they were going to illegally sell it on the streets.
As of CVN print deadline, neither McMillion nor Burnette were held in Southwestern Regional Jail.
