An officer's instincts apparently paid off when he stopped what he thought was a suspicious vehicle and ended up finding drugs and drug equipment inside.
New Bern police arrested the driver, 33 year-old Wanda Johnson of Arapahoe and her passenger, 22 year-old Cortez Broome of Bayboro.
Police say the car came from behind the Palace Motel in New Bern, stopped abruptly and quickly circled back around the building. The officer followed the vehicle and learned the plate was revoked. A search turned up drug equipment, cocaine and marijuana.
Both Johnson and Broome are charged with drug offenses.
