LENOIR COUNTY -

Four people have been arrested following a two-month-long meth trafficking investigation.

On Tuesday, Lenoir County sheriff’s deputies arrested Fortina Duque, 32, of Vancouver, Wash., Anibal Celis, 26, of Atlanta, Ga., Leonel Duque, 29, of Vancouver, Wash., and Juan Arzola, 21, of Asheboro. Each is charged with possession and trafficking meth.

Detectives arrested the four after they delivered two pounds of meth, worth approximately $70,000, to a house in Lenoir County that they had been watching. Officials are withholding the address of the house.

Each of the suspects is under a $1 million bond.
