Henderson County Sheriff’s deputies charged a 28-year-old Penrose woman seven drug and weapons offenses after a caller reported her walking along Spartanburg Highway on Sunday morning about 11 a.m.

Deputies responded to a reported domestic disturbance after a caller told dispatchers that a Ford Excursion was driving behind a woman who was walking towards Saluda on U.S. 176. When deputies arrived, they located a female and a male walking along the road.

The male, later identified as Corbin Burnett, 37, of Arden, ran away when the deputies approached. The female was identified as Shannon Dibernardino of Vineyard Loop Road in Penrose.

Deputies determined Burnett and Dibernardino had been in an argument prior to the deputies’ arrival, and they had exited the vehicle and their argument continued.

During the investigation, Dibernardino started acting aggressive and uncooperative with deputies. She admitted to being armed with a knife; when deputies found the knife, they also located a loaded concealed handgun, illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia. The handgun had been stolen from Transylvania County. Deputies found Burnett in a nearby grassy area attempting to hide from deputies. He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest.

Dibernardino was arrested and charged with Possession of MDMA/Ecstacy, Possession with intent to sell and deliver MDMA/Ecstacy, Possession of methamphetamine, Possession with intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine and Possession of a stolen firearm, all felonies, and with misdemeanor counts of Possession of concealed firearm and Possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked into the Henderson County Jail under a $103,000 secured bond
