NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Two people were arrested as a result of a month-long investigation by the New Hanover County Vice and Narcotics Division.  Authorities also seized 4 ounces of cocaine, which has a street value of $11,000.

Milford Locklear, 34, and Selina Lynn Locklear, 34, were both arrested Wednesday evening during a traffic stop on 3rd Street in Wilmington.

Milford was charged with trafficking cocaine, possession with the intent to sell and deliver cocaine, possession of marijuana, and maintaining a vehicle/dwelling for a controlled substance.

Selina was charged with conspiring to traffic in cocaine, possession of marijuana, and maintaining a vehicle/dwelling for a controlled substance.  She was released from the Detention Facility after posting a $10,000 secured bond.

"Based on our investigation, we believe the suspects involved were responsible for distributing a large amount of cocaine to New Hanover County," said Captain David Ciamillo.
