Rockingham Police accuse woman of having meth, crack at Hinson Lake

ROCKINGHAM — A woman is facing felony and misdemeanor drug charges following her arrest at a city park.

According to a Facebook post from the Rockingham Police Department, officers responded to a call the evening of Saturday, April 16 of a woman possibly unconscious on a bench at Hinson Lake.

When they arrived, the officers reportedly made contact with 31-year-old Barbara Lynn Outen, who eventually allegedly admitted to having drugs in her purse.

The officers reportedly found suspected methamphetamine and crack cocaine.

Outen was arrested and charged with one felony count each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver methamphetamine and possession of cocaine, as well as a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Richmond County Jail records show Outen was also served for failing to appear in court on a felony, however, online court records do not currently show that charge.


Outen is being held on a combined $10,000 secured bond — $5,000 on the drug charges, $5,000 for the FTA. She is scheduled to appear in court May 5 on all charges.

Records with the N.C. Department of Public Safety Division of Adult Correction show Outen has no prior convictions in the state.

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