Violation of No-Contact Order

At approximately 6:00pm on July 21st, the Henry County Sheriff’s Office attempted to conduct a traffic stop in the 2600-grid of Perkins Road. The vehicle was observed to have no registration plates, and the driver was identified and known not to possess a valid driver’s license. The driver and passenger also have an active No-Contact Order.

The vehicle then accelerated away from the Sheriff’s Office vehicles, and was followed to the back of a property in the 2500-grid of Perkins Road. The passenger then was taken into custody.

As a result, Samantha Sammons, 33, of Salem, was arrested for Violation of a No-Contact Order, a simple misdemeanor; two counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, simple misdemeanor; and two counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd or Subsequent Offense, D Felony.

This incident is still under investigation.
