Several North Carolina agencies were involved in a drug investigation that recently led to the arrest of four people and the issuance of arrest warrants for a fifth person. The four individuals were arrested on state drug charges after a traffic stop on U.S. 421. Law enforcement officials initiated the stop pursuant to a search warrant.
Officers claim they found prescription medications, cocaine and marijuana when the search was conducted. The search of the vehicle, in turn, led officers to a North Carolina home. Pursuant to a separate search warrant for the residence, authorities claim to have found more drugs.
