North Carolina man charged with drugs, firearms violations

Multiple charges have been filed against a North Carolina man after authorities received several complaints about suspected drug activity and wildlife violations at a home, a sheriff’s office said Thursday.

The Craven County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that deputies and officers from North Carolina Wildlife conducted an investigation which led to a search warrant being issued for a home in Cove City. During the search, deputies seized an undisclosed amount of heroin and methamphetamine, as well as several firearms.

The sheriff’s office arrested Michael Glen Stevenson, 39, and charged him with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine and several unspecified wildlife violations. Stevenson was also served with outstanding warrants for assault on the elderly and communicating threats, the news release said.

Stevenson is jailed on a $135,000 bond and it’s not known if he has an attorney.
