Beaufort County Deputies Make A Surprise Find: Deer & Drugs

Deputies made a surprising discovery after pulling over a pick-up truck for swerving early Friday morning in Beaufort County.

Authorities tell us they stopped a red Toyota pick-up truck around 3am after it was veering off the road.

Joseph Brown and Jim Buck were arrested by the Sheriff's Department, both in possession of marijuana but also something else.

Officials noticed fresh blood dripping from the back of the vehicle, that's when they discovered two-dead deer in the back.

Wildlife officers were called into help.

They told WITN Brown and Buck illegally shot and killed the deer, and this isn't the first time.

Both have previously been charged with illegally hunting deer.
