BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) -

Approximately $20,000 was seized during a joint agency license checking station and resulted in the arrest of an Ash man on Tuesday.

According to Sheriff James A. McVicker with the Bladen County Sheriff's Department, Rayfeus Levell Miller, 28, was arrested after the vehicle he was riding in approached a license checking station being conducted in Bladenboro by members of the Bladenboro Police Department and the Bladen County Sheriff's Office. 

“As the vehicle Miller was riding in pulled up to the license check, officers could smell the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle,” said McVicker. “At almost the same time, Deputy Tremain Harvey saw Miller throw a small plastic bag out of the vehicle. Deputy Harvey retrieved the bag and found it to contain powdered cocaine.”

Two other people in the car were removed and Miller was found to be in possession of prescription pills.

Miller was charged with trafficking opiom, simple possession of schedule IV. controlled substance (Xanax)  and simple possession of schedule IV controlled substance (marijuana).

Officers also found and seized approximately $20,000 in US currency after no one in the vehicle would claim the money.

This is just another example of two agencies working together to get drugs and criminals off our streets," McVicker said. "Bladenboro officers and my deputies routinely work together and I consider them to be a valuable ally in our quest to keep this county and our citizens safe."

Miller was booked in Bladen County jail under a $105,000.00 secured bond.
