An Anniston man and woman are facing drug distribution charges after police found bags of pre-packaged cocaine in their vehicle Sunday.

Victoria Faith Dill, 32, and Charles Bernard Hobdy, 40, both were charged with distribution of a controlled substance, a felony, according to warrants for their arrest.

Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks said officers discovered the cocaine during a traffic stop on Quintard Avenue between midnight and 1 a.m.

Sparks said the officers stopped the vehicle because the driver had been driving improperly. Hobdy also was charged with failing to signal, driving with a revoked license and a misdemeanor count of DUI after he refused to take a chemical test, Sparks said.

According to the sergeant, officers followed protocol and were making a list of the vehicle’s contents as they were waiting for a tow truck. During the inspection they discovered what appeared to be cocaine packaged for resale, Sparks said.

Dill was released from the Calhoun County Jail on a $10,000 bond Sunday. Hobdy was also released Sunday on a $51,000 bond, according to Sparks. They are scheduled to appear in court on March 6.

Sparks said the report did not mention how many grams of cocaine were found in the car but said that the cocaine has been sent to a forensics lab in Hoover.
