Suspected Drug Dealers Arrested Again While Out On Bond

Two suspected drug dealers who were out on bond have been arrested again in Carteret County.

Deputies say Lamar "Boo Boo" Teel and Steven "Tony" Wilson, both of Newport, were arrested Tuesday on numerous drug charges. Just six months ago the two were arrested for selling marijuana and cocaine. Sheriff Asa Buck says the two got out of jail in just three hours with bonds on $200,000 for Teel and $100,000 for Wilson.

Buck says they continued to receive information that the two were still involved in the drug trade and they targeted them again with undercover operations. The two were arrested at Frank's Pizza on Highway 24, and deputies say they were conducting their drug business in the parking lot. A search found marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy in their vehicle.

This time Teel's bond was set at $500,000 and Wilson's was $400,000.
