On June 2, 2022, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office observed a vehicle on the side of Vaughn York Road and conducted a welfare check. The driver was identified as Travis Earl Pugh, Jr., 30, who had an Order for Arrest and was therefore placed in custody. Deputies discovered paraphernalia while taking him into custody.
During a subsequent search, illegal narcotics and paraphernalia were located in the front passenger seat where Kimberly Nicole Hopkins, 30, had been sitting upon officer’s approach. Hopkins was also taken into custody.
