Two Princeton residents are facing multiple charges, including drug possession, following an incident Sunday evening.
Assistant Princeton Police Chief Shane Allison reports officers responded to West Green Street just after seven in reference to a complaint of an intoxicated driver. He adds when officers arrived on scene and located the described vehicle they made contact with the driver, 39-year-old Larry W. Cook, and determined he was allegedly under the influence of intoxicants. A passenger in the vehicle, 36-year-old Sally J. Meredith, was also found to allegedly be under the influence of intoxicants.
Assistant Chief Allison reports further investigation and a search of the vehicle revealed several controlled substances including suspected methamphetamine, marijuana, Xanax, and open alcohol containers.
Cook was arrested and charged with his first DUI offense, first degree possession of methamphetamine, third degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle, and possession of marijuana.
Meredith was also taken into custody and was charged with first degree possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, prescription not in the proper container, and public intoxication.
Both Cook and Meredith were then lodged in the Caldwell County Jail.
