Cocaine, oxycodone, and a stolen firearm were among the contraband seized after a traffic stop Monday.

Charles Brown, 28, of 223 Old N.C. 211, Bolton, and Karlie Raelyn Brown, 23, of Leland, were stopped just before 11 a.m., according to the sheriff’s office. Charles Brown was charged with two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen firearm, driving while license revoked, and displaying a fictitious tag. Detention Center reports show he was placed under a total secured bond of $20,000.

Karlie Brown had a quantity of cocaine, according to arrest report. It was later discovered she had cocaine and oxycodone concealed “in her body,” according to the report.
