CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - Carteret County deputies say a Newport man was arrested last week on several drug charges.

Deputies say on Nov. 7th, Yancey was arrested after a traffic stop, in which detectives found several grams each of cocaine, fentanyl, meth, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and four doses of suboxone.

WITN is told that the traffic stop led them to search Yancey’s home at Dutch Treat Mobile Home Park outside of Newport and also a room at the Econo Lodge motel in Morehead City.

The sheriff’s office says at these locations they found more contraband and drug paraphernalia used for maintaining, manufacturing, and selling controlled substances.

Yancey was jailed under a $25,000 secured bond, but it was increased to $250,000 at his first court appearance on Nov. 8th.
