Officials say 32-year-old Erica Shante Reviere drove through the checkpoint, but could not produce a valid driver’s license. Deputies also smelled marijuana coming from her car.

Further investigation showed she had arrest warrants from North and South Carolina for human trafficking of a child victim and promoting prostitution of a minor.

Deputies also discovered about a gram of cocaine in Reviere’s car.

Reviere is now in the Pitt County Detention Center under a $265,000 bond. She will make her first court appearance Monday.
