• A Dobson woman was taken into custody in Mount Airy early Thursday on a charge of resisting, obstructing or delaying a public officer and an outstanding order for arrest, according to city police department reports. Catherine Roseanne White, 40, of 721 E. Atkins St., was encountered by police during a traffic stop in the 1900 block of North Main Street.
She was found to be the subject of the arrest order, for failing to appear in court, which had been filed on Feb. 23. The resisting offense issued against White typically relates to someone providing false information to hide their identity and avoid such an order, fleeing the scene or otherwise being uncooperative with law enforcement. Arrest records indicate that White has an alias with Wood as the last name. She was confined in the Surry County Jail under a $1,500 secured bond and slated for an appearance in District Court next Tuesday.

He was jailed under a $2,500 secured bond and is scheduled to be in Surry District Court on May 2.
