A woman was arrested on several drugs charges after authorities received an anonymous tip she was preparing to smoke weed during a Facebook Live.
Around 9:15 a.m. Thursday morning, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office was notified that Candace Keene, 33, was preparing cannabis to be smoked in a live stream on Facebook, according to a news release from the sheriff’s office.
“Investigators reviewed the social media account and were able to observe the video,” a spokesperson for the department wrote in the release. “Investigators and H.E.A.T. Deputies went to the home of Candace Keene and spoke to her about the narcotics seen in the video, which she did not deny.”
Investigators found and collected unspecified amounts of weed and a controlled prescription medicine not prescribed to Keene during the home search.
According to the news release, while in a patrol vehicle following her arrest, Keene allegedly threatened to “purposely” urinate in the vehicle.
Keene was taken to jail and charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell, or deliver a schedule VI controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and damage to government property. Her bond was set at $4,000 secured.
“We want to thank the citizens that report concerns to us no matter how large or small,” a spokesperson wrote in the release. “In North Carolina, cannabis is illegal, and we have a duty to enforce all laws no matter the opinion. We have collected some marijuana that has contained fentanyl and other deadly drugs and narcotics.”
the comment about fentanyl being in weed is pure b.s. anyone who knows chemistry even a lil can tell you it will just burn off it will not get you high if you smoke it mixed with marijuana,it has to be smoked off aluminum foil,just another scare tactic by the powers that be.
This world is gone to shit. Ban a plant that’s good for us
How can we get her free
Completely wasted city funds…
That is incorrect. Just ask the state of Connecticut where 30+ people have required narcan after smoking laced weed
People who are against a plant, please just slap yo damn self.
Cops just can’t seem to see beyond their Nazi mentality, another life ruined by force to be subservient to the state!
Absolutely insane. Have fun being a mark for the rest of your life, whoever reported this harmless woman smoking marijuana in her own god forsaken house.
this garbage is going to stop when legalization reaches NC and it WILL. The police can protest all they want, but legalization will silence such raids.
Clombus county sheriffs office needs to worry about real criminals and stop the b.s. u wonder why people chose to defund law enforcment
Canada has legalized marijuana. North Carolina & the rest of the states should follow Canada’s path of legalization. Weed is your friend.
marijuanna laced with fentanyl has been found in vermont and conneticut. google it for yourself. the vermont man who smoked it had no idea there was fentanyl in his weed.
Have people nothing better to do? Get a life!
To the person. Dgaudet73 I’m sorry to tell you hunny but you really need to know this if you put it on your weed yes it will burn it will melt down to a liquid on your weed and it will smoke right along with the weed and yes you will get high from it so u will be twice the high from the weed and the fentanyl together your going to get really high I’m not trying to be mean or any type of bitch I just read your message and thought you should know and tell others that don’t know
Look how many other people smoke weed live or on or apps geez
I think the person who narc’d her out is a spineless fraction of a human being. Were it me, I’d come out of jail with Vengeance and blood lust.
