ASHEBORO, N.C. Aug 24 2019
Deputies have arrested an Archdale woman after she was accused of bringing methamphetamine through the security measures at the Randolph County Courthouse.
A deputy with the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office’s criminal interdiction team was working at security at the courthouse Tuesday and came in contact with Brooke Kellemst, 24.
Investigators said Kellemst placed her items into a metal bowl to be scanned in the metal detector. As the items exited the scan, deputies said the container had a suspicious substance inside.
Upon further investigation, deputies said the content was identified as methamphetamine.
Kellems was arrested and taken to the Randolph County Detention Center and charged with felony possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor drug paraphernalia.
The magistrate issued a written promise to appear and instructed the officer to take Kellems back to the courthouse, since she was due in front of a judge for similar charges from October.
The judge continued the 2018 case until Sept. 17 and set Kellems’ first appearance on the new charges for Sept. 9 in Randolph County District Court.
