33-year-old Tajuana Shamika Young of 8th Street N.E. in Hickory was arrested by Hickory Police at about 4:20 yesterday (September 12) on one felony count of possession of cocaine and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Her arrest stems from an incident in April of this year. Officers on foot patrol at the Sunny Valley housing complex on 3rd Avenue S.E. encountered Young and found 0.2 grams of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia on her person. She was initially arrested at that time.
Young was taken into custody without incident yesterday at a convenience store on South Center Street. She was placed in the Catawba Co. Detention Facility with bond set at $4,000, secured. An appearance in Superior Court was scheduled today in Newton.
