Blotter: Woman charged with bringing 14 suboxone strips into jail

SALISBURY — A Salisbury woman was charged Tuesday with felony possession of a controlled substance in a jail or prison after she was previously booked into jail for violating terms of her probation.

Megan Laura Snider, 33, was first booked into the Rowan County Detention Center on Sept. 23 for the probation violation. Maj. John Sifford said she was charged with the drug crime because deputies found 14 suboxone strips in her possession during a search.

Snider said suboxone was prescribed to her by a counseling agency. She allegedly had 18 total strips when she was first booked into jail. Sifford said Snider hid them in her vaginal cavity.

Snider has since been released from jail because the drug crime only required a written promise to appear in court.
