CCSO seizes pounds of meth, other drugs during Wednesday speeding stop

(County 17)

Two suspects have been charged with multiple drug-related felonies after nearly eight pounds of meth and other drugs were seized during a Wednesday night traffic stop, court documents say.

Rondell Baker, 30, and Amelia Adams, 24, are both charged with three counts of felony drug possession and three counts of felony intent to deliver after Campbell County Sheriff’s deputies reportedly located nearly eight pounds of meth, a quarter pound of fentanyl pills, and 65.2 grams of suspected cocaine in their vehicle, according to affidavits of probable cause filed in the case.

Their vehicle, a 2020 Dodge Journey with Kentucky registration, was stopped on Highway 59 near Antler Road after a deputy allegedly observed it fail to slow down as it traveled northbound into a 45-mph zone from a 70, per the affidavits.

While the deputy was in the process of giving Baker a warning for speeding, a sheriff’s office K9 reportedly indicated on the vehicle’s exterior. Adams, a passenger, turned over a dispensary container with a small amount of marijuana inside, per the affidavits.

When deputies searched the vehicle, they located a floral-patterned backpack that contained multiple vacuum-sealed packages of crystal meth as well as a black money bag that contained vacuumed sealed packages of suspected cocaine and a large number of suspected fentanyl pills marked “M30”, the affidavits say.

Adams and Baker were both arraigned on the charges before Circuit Court Judge Paul S. Phillips.
