Drugs and a firearm seized during a traffic stop on N.C. 11 by Grifton police. Jason Yochim was arrested during the incident.
A traffic stop led Grifton Police Department officers to arrest a man for drug and weapon possession earlier this week, the agency reported.
A social media post by the department said that on Tuesday officers conducted a stop on N.C. 11 in town. Officers located two pounds of marijuana, more than two ounces of psilocybin mushrooms and a rifle with ammunition, the post said.
The driver, Jason Yochim, was charged with misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon, felony possession with intent to sell, deliver marijuana and felony possession with the intent to sell, manufacture or deliver MDPV.
The post did not provide a reason for the traffic stop nor what led to Yochim’s vehicle being searched. It also did not provide an age or city of residence for Yochim.
The department and Town of Grifton did not respond to multiple attempts to gather more information. Yochim was booked at the Lenoir County Jail under a $15,200 secured bond.
