Wanted Person Provided Fake Name In Attempt To Avoid Arrest, JCSO Says

A 29 year-old woman is accused of giving law enforcement officers a fake name during a traffic stop.  It turns out the woman reportedly had methamphetamines in her possession and was wanted on outstanding charges in another county.

At 2:07am last Wednesday, Aug. 14th, a Johnston County deputy stopped a car on Highway 301 near Highway 70 in the Selma city limits.  The driver, Rileigh Jordan Kehler of Fayetteville, reportedly gave the deputy a fictitious name.  Eventually, Kehler provided her real name. Authorities said a routine background check determined she was wanted in Franklin County on four warrants. Those warrants were for failure to appear for breaking and entering, larceny, possession of methamphetamines, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During her arrest, officers said they found an envelope in Kehler’s waistband. One gram of suspected methamphetamine was found inside the envelope.  Kehler was held under a $50,000 bond on charges of possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and providing fictitious information to a law enforcement officer. She was given an additional $36,000 bond on the failure to appear warrants.
