ABINGDON, Va. — An Interstate 81 traffic stop prompted deputies to arrest a Maine pair on drug charges Thursday.
Rachel F. Boyce, 28, Somerville, Maine, and Nathan Scott Lachenmyer, 22, Cambridge, Maine, were arrested after Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Dewey Fulton stopped their pickup going 80 mph in a 70-mph zone, Sheriff Fred Newman said in a news release.
In a consensual search, deputies found various illegal narcotics on Boyce and Lachenmyer, Newman said, and both admitted ownership of the drugs, which included "magic mushrooms," Adderrall, and a gummy-type candy that had been treated with amphetamine.
Boyce was charged with two counts of possession of a schedule II controlled substance. She was later released on a $2,500 bond.
Lachenmyer, was charged with one count of possession of a schedule II controlled substance. He was released on a $1,500 bond.
