Carteret County Man Calls For Help, Gets Arrested On Drug Charges

Carteret County Deputies say a man called them for help to get a man out of his house who had passed out and both men ended up arrested when authorities say they found a stockpile of drugs.

William Ballou, 57-years-old, called deputies Saturday wanting help getting his guest out of his house.

Deputies say they found 34-year-old Michael Hedaria of Clinton unconscious in a bedroom.

They say they also found drugs--18 plastic bags containing crystal meth, along with dozens of illegal pills.

At the jail, deputies say Ballou had more illegal pills in his pants.

Both men were arrested and face several drug charges.
