Dare Co. Sheriff’s Office: Man arrested after deputies find meth during traffic stop


DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — A 36-year-old North Carolina man was arrested Friday after he was allegedly found with methamphetamine during a traffic stop.

The Dare County Sheriff’s Office stopped a vehicle near Airstrip Road in Kill Devil Hills Friday evening.

The stop came after information was passed along from the Dare County Drug Task Force saying people were selling narcotics out of local motels, the sheriff’s office wrote in a news release.

During the traffic stop, deputies searched the vehicle, which was occupied by Lance Lloyd Montague Jr., and found “an amount” of methamphetamine, the sheriff’s office said.
