Two men were arrested and charged with trafficking cocaine after sheriff's deputies found nearly 50 grams of cocaine in one man’s vehicle during a  traffic stop on Friday.

The traffic stop was conducted on U.S. 11 North, just outside of Bethel.

Hunter Joel Dees, 21, and Rashod Thomas Ballentine, 23, each are charged with trafficking cocaine by possession, trafficking cocaine by transport, and conspiracy to traffic cocaine. They are being held at the Pitt County Detention Center, each under $1 million bond.

Prior to the traffic stop, the men were named as persons of interest after the Pitt County Sheriff's Office Narcotics division concluded their investigation into illegal cocaine trafficking at East Carolina University.
