A woman whose report of criminal domestic violence led to her and the man she was living with being arrested on drug and firearm charges is now facing possible extradition to North Carolina on drug charges.
Norene Kathleen Swayngim, 43, 134 A St., Jonesville, is charged by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with trafficking methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful disposal of methamphetamine waste, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and trafficking methamphetamine within a 1/2 mile of a school.
Swayngim and Franklin Mark Bonner, 43, also of 134 A St., Jonesville, were arrested New Year’s Day by sheriff’s deputies who were originally dispatched to a residence on Spartanburg Highway in response to a complaint by Swayngim that Bonner had beat her and put her out of the side of the road while they were on their way home from a party. While trying to find Bonner, deputies searched the couple’s residence and found a small quantity of methamphetamine. A subsequent search of the building turned a methamphetamine lab and a large quantity of methamphetamine in the residence as well as a shotgun and several air guns.
Bonner was later taken into custody and was charged with criminal domestic violence as well as trafficking methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful disposal of methamphetamine waste, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and trafficking methamphetamine within a 1/2 mile of a school. After being taken to Wallace Thomson Hospital for treatment for the injuries she said she’d suffered at Bonner’s hands, Swayngim was also taken into custody.
After being booked at the Union County Jail, Bonner and Swayngim were ran through NCIC and it was determined Swayngim was also wanted in North Carolina for drug charges. An incident report filed Wednesday states that Swayngim is wanted by the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office in Newton, NC, for possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and distribute. She is now charged with being a fugitive from justice which will allow the sheriff’s office detain her for extradition to North Carolina.
