Deputies arrest two from Cameron on drug charges

Two men from Cameron are facing several drug charges after being arrested Wednesday and placed at the Moore County Detention Center under $50,000 secured bonds.

Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields said Joe Johnson, 64, and James Larks, 66, were arrested after deputies discovered cocaine in their vehicle during a traffic stop.

“On November 9, 2022, Deputies with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop in the 4400 block of Cypress Church Road in Cameron,” said Fields in a news release. “During the traffic stop, Deputies conducted a search of the vehicle. As a result of the search, Deputies located cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia.”

Both suspects are facing charges of possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine, felony possession of cocaine, maintaining a vehicle/dwelling place for controlled substances, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

They are due in court on Dec. 8 and are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
