Police allegedly found other drug paraphernalia in a bag, six wrapped baggies of suspected cocaine, a plastic bowl of suspected cocaine and a set of scales. A 30-06 caliber rifle was found in the trunk, police said.

Fauver was charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine, police said.

Her bond was set at $50,000, but she posted it late Sunday with the aid of a bondsman, police said.
