A winter weather advisory is in effect until 7am on Saturday for Beaufort, Mainland Hyde, Martin, Outer Banks Dare, Tyrrell, Washington and western Dare County. The threats are black ice and slick roadways.
What started as a house fire quickly turned into a drug bust and a felony arrest. New Bern Police says firefighters arrived at a home on Tryon Road Monday night and quickly put out a kitchen fire. But fire personnel assessing the damage saw bags of marijuana sitting in plain view. Officials say they discovered a lot of marijuana in various stages of growth and being processed. The home's 44-year-old resident, John Wallace was arrested and is being held in the Craven County jail.
