Traffic stop leads to heroin arrest
A traffic stop in Duplin County led to the arrest of a man on drug charges.
Deputies say they stopped 28-year-old Monterius Smith for a traffic violation on I-40 near Warsaw on April 9. A K-9 search of his vehicle revealed 35 plastic bags of white powder which tested positive for heroin.
Smith, of Dudley, was charged with several heroin-related charges. He was jailed under a $150,00 bond.
