A traffic stop led to multiple charges and the seizure of more than four pounds of methamphetamine Saturday. Amador Misael Mendez-Diaz, 29, is charged with trafficking methamphetamine by possession and trafficking methamphetamine by transportation. Mendez-Diaz was initially pulled over in the Grover area for making an unsafe movement, according to the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office. He was driving a Ford truck and pulling a Toyota Camry on a tow dolly, and he did not have a license, investigators say. During the traffic stop, a sheriff’s K-9 indicated narcotics in the Camry, according to investigators. Deputies reportedly found 4.08 pounds of methamphetamine wrapped in plastic and electrical tape hidden inside the panels of the car’s rear doors. The methamphetamine seized has a street value of $182,800, according to the Sheriff’s Office. “When the average citizen thinks about four pounds of meth, it is probably hard for them to put that amount into context,” Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman said. “This drug is the biggest scourge in our county right now, and we are going to do everything in our power to stop its flow whenever we can.” Mendez-Diaz was taken to Cleveland County Detention Center and assigned a $300,000 bond.

Congratulations to Deputy Latoya Ross for being awarded “Officer of the Year” for North State Law Enforcement Officers Association. Deputy Ross was also awarded 3rd place in the firearms competition.

A young missionary received unsolicited charity when he returned from a trip to the Philippines. Caleb Rollins, 18, took his first mission trip in May, spending money he saved to buy a car to make the journey. When word spread around Cleveland County about the teen’s giving nature, a deputy and his wife decided to help. They took a truck previously used by their son and gave it to Rollins. “We felt God wanted us to do that, and we did. It’s all about God,” said Daniel Ashley. Tearful introduction Ashley and his wife, Callie, heard about Rollins from Richie Scruggs. Scruggs, a member of Faith Baptist Church, spoke to a Sunday school class at Flint Hill Baptist Church about his annual mission trips, and about what Rollins gave up this year to join him. Scruggs unwittingly planted a seed in the Ashleys’ minds and hearts, and he later set up a meeting between the two families in which the keys were handed over. It was a joyous, albeit tear-filled, meeting. “We all just sat around that truck and cried,” Scruggs said. Meant for missions Caleb Rollins has talked about going on mission trips for a couple of years. “He’s a young preacher boy that loves to serve the Lord,” said his mother, April Rollins. He decided this was the year, and he used is $1,500 in savings to make the journey, one that is no vacation, according to Scruggs. Scruggs says the trip takes about 30 hours one way, and temperatures climb over 120 degrees, but Caleb didn’t miss a beat. “He was just a ball of fire,” Scruggs said. “He hit the ground running as soon as we got there.” Joyous hearts Rollins’ one word to describe the Philippines would be hot. His description of the people couldn’t be captured so simply. He said the Pilipino people are hard-working with many living in poverty. “They don’t have much, yet they have joy in their hearts,” he said. A graduate of Mountain View Christian Academy, Rollins has taken some courses at Cleveland Community College and soon will attend Bob Jones University in Greenville, S.C., a trip from Patterson Springs that will be made easier with the shiny Nissan truck. Deserving recipient Scruggs and Rollins spent two weeks in the Philippines. Scruggs said he was impressed with Rollins’ vigor for the work. He watched as Rollins gave all of his money from his wallet to the church, leaving only enough for a meal on the way home. Getting a gift inspired by God seemed especially fitting, Scruggs said. “He is so deserving, such a good young man,” Scruggs said. “The Lord is continuing to bless this young man.” Article from The Shelby Star Online.

SCAM ALERT There is an individual or individuals posing as local law enforcement officers calling residences and stating that they have missed jury duty and they owe a fine. They state that if they do not pay the fine you will go to jail. Law Enforcement does not solicit any fine money by phone. Fines are only issued by a judge. Any time someone asks you to wire money you should consider it suspicious unless you personally know the individual.

The Sheriff, Chief’s of Police and District Attorney together as we remembered the Cleveland County officers who paid the ultimate price by dying in the line of duty.
