Four people are behind bars, accused of trafficking the addictive drug meth.
The Lenoir County Sheriff's Office says that a 2-month investigation led to the arrest of 32-year-old Fortina Duque, 26-year-old Anibal Celis, 29-year-old Leonel Duque, and 21-year-old Juan Arzola on October 8th.
Officials say surveillance of a home in north eastern Lenoir County led to catching a drug transaction.
