Richmond County deputies charge woman with meth trafficking

ROCKINGHAM — A woman currently on probation in another county and with current pending charges is accused of selling meth.

Investigators with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office Community Impact Team recently charged 67-year-old Vickie Lynn Davis after looking into complaints of her allegedly selling narcotics, according to a press release issued Tuesday.

Davis, of Rockingham, allegedly sold more than 28 grams of meth to investigators.

She was arrested Saturday, May 20 and charged with one felony count each of: trafficking in methamphetamine; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver methamphetamine; selling methamphetamine; delivering methamphetamine; possession of methamphetamine; and maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place for a controlled substance.

Davis was booked into the Richmond County Jail where she is being held on a $300,000 secured bond. She is scheduled to appear in court June 1.

This isn’t Davis’ first brush with meth, according to court records, which show she has pending charges from 2022: possession of methamphetamine; maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place for a controlled substance; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Records with the N.C. Department of Adult Correction show Davis is currently serving an 18-month suspended sentence following an April 3 conviction in Scotland County on a charge of possession with intent to sell or deliver a counterfeit Schedule II controlled substance.

She appears to have no criminal record in North Carolina or neighboring South Carolina counties prior to last year.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
