DARE COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Authorities in Dare County, North Carolina say they found multiple types of drugs during a traffic stop on Jan. 8.

Jeremy Rashad Lewis, 21, of Kill Devil Hills, was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to manufacture/sell/deliver a schedule I, III, and IV controlled substance.

The Dare County Narcotics Task Force stopped a vehicle in the East Lake area of Dare County around 5 p.m. Jan. 8 because they believed it was making a “drug run,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a news release.

The vehicle was searched and authorities say they found “an amount of” methamphetamine, MDMA (Molly), Xanax, Subutex and psilocybin mushrooms.
