City County Task Drug Force agents D.R. Radford and D.W. McKeel stopped the vehicle around 2 p.m. on Vine Street near Smith Church Road, Captain A.M. Harris said in a statement.
Radford seized heroin and syringes,
Harris said this evening some of the heroin and needles were in plain view and some fell out of one of their shirts. He said it is possible the women, Brittany Deanna Adams, 32, and Jessica Lynn Tilley, 20, had allegedly just purchased heroin in the area.
Both Adams, of Roanoke Rapids, and Tilley, of Goldsboro, were charged for felony possession of heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance.
Tilley was also cited with a North Carolina Uniform Citation for failure to wear seat belt. Adams and Tilley received $3,500 bonds and May 17 court dates.
