HATTERAS ISLAND, N.C. (WAVY) — Three people from South Carolina are facing a long list of charges after a drug bust on Hatteras Island.
The Dare County Narcotics Task Force made the arrests in late October during a traffic stop while investigating a complaint about drug activity in Buxton.
Isaiah Shaffer, 20, Justin Moore, 24, and Linda Deem, 42, all face charges of possessing mephedrone.
It’s a recreational drug commonly known as bath salts or zombie drug.
Police say there was also a child on the floorboard of the car when they were stopped on Oct. 20.
That led to child abuse charges against Moore and Deem, officials say.
