DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY/WNCT) — Two people have been arrested on drug charges in Dare County.

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 36-year-old Lance Lloyd Montague Jr., and found “an amount” of methamphetamine, the sheriff’s office said.

The release didn’t specify how much methamphetamine was found.

Montague was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to deliver methamphetamine, which is a felony.

He is being held at the Dare County Detention Center on a $75,000 secured bond.

On Wednesday, deputies with the A-District arrested Shawna Nicole Crain, 39, of Kill Devil Hills.

Crain was charged with felony aid and abet, possession with the intent to sell/deliver methamphetamine and felony possession of cocaine.

She was released on a $6,000 bond.
