On June 20, 2023, a Randolph County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop on Interstate 85. Additional deputies responded to assist on the stop. During a subsequent search, marijuana was located on the passenger, identified as Devan Robinson of Spartanburg, SC. Based on the marijuana and belief that Robinson had more contraband on his person, he was placed under arrest and transported him to Randolph County Detention Center. During the booking process, Robinson was searched further by staff who located additional illegal drugs.
