A traffic stop for a fake license plate led lawmen to a drug bust.
Onslow County deputies have arrested Ashley Ray of Midway Park and Stephen Mathews of Kinston on multiple drug charges, including trafficking opium.
After writing Mathews a ticket for the fake plate Saturday evening, deputies say the man allowed them to search his vehicle. Inside they found 41 Oxycodone tablets.
The two were placed in jail on $50,000 secure bonds.
