Traffic stop leads to heroin charges

An Iron Station man was allegedly caught possessing nearly $2,000 in heroin Thursday night
following a traffic stop in central Lincoln County.
Deputies stopped the vehicle after 8 p.m. near Exit 23 on U.S. 321.
Authorities deemed the car suspicious-looking according to a Sheriff’s Office press release.
During a search of the vehicle, deputies seized five grams of heroin and charged the driver, 28-
year-old Camden Michael Nolen, of the 6000 block of Nolen Acres Lane, 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 revealed that he’s no stranger to drug use after his record on the North
Carolina Department of Correction website revealed that 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.
