Deputies arrest man, woman after finding drugs in stolen car

A Lexington County man and woman were arrested Monday after deputies found drugs in a stolen car the pair were in during a traffic stop.

Rozalynd Clare Cawood, 42, is charged with possession of a Schedule I narcotic, according to an incident report. Michael Jeremy Knox, 39, is charged with driving under suspension-third offense.

“A deputy stopped the car on South Lake Drive because it didn’t have a license plate,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “After the car was confirmed stolen out of Ohio, Cawood and Knox were detained while deputies searched the car.”

Deputies found crystal meth and drug paraphernalia under the passenger seat, according to Koon.

Cawood and Knox are being held in the Lexington Count Detention Center while they await a bond hearing.

Investigators are still working to determine the owner of the stolen car.
