Iron Station man arrested for heroin

An Iron Station man was caught possessing nearly $2,000 in heroin Thursday night following a traffic stop in central Lincoln County, deputies said.
Officers stopped the vehicle after 8 p.m. near Exit 23 on U.S. 321. Authorities had deemed the car suspicious-looking, according to a Sheriff’s Office press release.
During a search of the vehicle, deputies said they seized five grams of heroin.
The driver, 28-year-old Camden Michael Nolen, of the 6000 block of Nolen Acres Lane in Iron Station, faces with multiple drug-related charges.
As of Friday afternoon, Nolen remained behind bars under a $60,000 secured bond.
He faces one felony count each of trafficking heroin and possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule I controlled substance. He has also been charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, authorities said.
Nolen’s criminal history reveals that he’s no stranger to drug offenses. According to the North Carolina Department of Correction website, he was found guilty of possessing a schedule I controlled substance in Lincoln County in 2009.
He also has at least one other felony offense on his record for obtaining property by false pretenses the following year.
