On October 17, 2022, a vehicle stop by Maiden Police Department for an expired tag led to the arrest of Carnes for possession of the opiates. She was the front passenger of the vehicle, and suspected narcotics were found in her seat when she exited. A subsequent search resulted in the discovery of drug paraphernalia in the center console and front passenger door pocket.
Upon her arrest, Carnes informed officers she had more drugs in her possession and produced three plastic baggies containing suspected narcotics. The drugs in those bags were sent to the State Crime Lab for testing, and the results showed a trafficking amount of opiates.
The case was investigated by Maiden Police Department. Jonathan Greer prosecuted the matter for the District Attorney’s Office with aid from Legal Assistant Stacey London.
