“No one would answer the door so we got a search warrant and found her hiding under a bed,” Faggart said. “She did not resist once she was found.”

Stanfield Police were assisted by Oakboro Police Department and the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office.

On May 13, the Stanfield Police, with the assistance from the Locust Police Department and Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at Hollar’s home at 103 Hill Top Ave., during which multiple illegal drugs were found.

She faces charges of possession with intent to sell and deliver amphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintain a dwelling for controlled substances, misdemeanor child abuse and probation violation.

She was booked in to the Stanly County Jail on a $30,000 secured bond.
