Two Charged With Opium Trafficking

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.
