An ongoing investigation into heroin trafficking in Dare County led to two arrests during a Tuesday traffic stop in Nags Head.

The Dare County Narcotics Task Force arrested Wesley Taylor Foster, 29, of the 200 block of Woodland Drive in Southern Shores and Tina Michelle Davis, 35, of Pirates Moore in Kill Devil Hills, following an ongoing investigation, according to a news release from the Dare County Sheriff’s Office.
