Two nabbed on meth charges after traffic stop in Madison County

A traffic stop on a car seen weaving across the line just north of Danielsville led to the arrest of a man and woman on several felony drug charges on Friday, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office.

When the car stopped for the blue lights on Rock Quarry Road, the deputy reported the Honda Accord almost went into the ditch and the two backseat passengers were observed “attempting to conceal something,” the officer said.

During the stop, one of the backseat passengers, Kevin Michael Sorrow, became agitated and declined to give the officer consent to search the car, deputies said. Nothing was found on the driver or his front-seat passenger, but a pack of three hypodermic needles were found on Sorrow and a bag of methamphetamine residue was found on Delorean Elise Strickland.

The car was searched and deputies found a bag with numerous syringes, four loaded with a substance that appeared to be blood and meth, a container of liquid meth, glass pipes, and some pills identified as Clonazepam, Klonopin and some that could not be immediately identified.

Sorrow, 33, of Winterville, and Strickland, 30, of Athens were both charged with possession of meth, possession of controlled substances, having drugs not in their original container, and possession of drug-related objects. Sorrow is also being held on a parole violation.
