A Forsyth County couple faces drug trafficking charges after a search of their vehicle turned up a large amount of suspected methamphetamine.

Roger Brumbelow and Britney Chavez, both 25, were arrested Friday following a traffic stop on Hurt Bridge Road near Tallant Drive.

Each has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of a schedule II narcotic and possession of a schedule IV narcotic.

As of Tuesday, they remained in custody at the Forsyth County Detention Center.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report, deputies stopped Brumbelow after they spotted him not wearing a seatbelt while driving.

The trafficking charge was levied due to the large amount of suspected methamphetamine found in the vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office. The state statute requires possession of more than 28 grams.

Brumbelow and Chavez live in the same home on Knight Road, according to the incident report. Chavez told deputies she is dating Brumbelow.
