A routine traffic stop ended with two people in jail facing a drug and burglary charges.
Around 6:00 Thursday night, Marion County Sheriff's Deputies pulled over a car on I-79. They say the driver, Amanda Rinehart, appeared intoxicated and admitted to snorting pills and cocaine. They ended up finding 6.8 grams of cocaine and other drugs in the car. Rinehart was arrested for driving under the influence of narcotics.
Her passenger, Stephen Robbins, was also arrested for possession with intent. While police were searching their home on Gaston Avenue in Fairmont they received a call that the two were also wanted for burglary charges and they found thousands of dollars worth of stolen items in the home.
They're both in the North Central Regional Jail at this time.
