Expired: Driver Facing Multiple Charges

A Goldsboro man was arrested and jailed under a $100,000 bond following a traffic stop last Friday in eastern Johnston County.

Around 3:05pm, a sheriff’s deputy stopped a black GMC truck for driving left of center in the 7100 block of Princeton-Kenly Road.  After the officer approached the truck he allegedly detected an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Deputies said the driver, identified as 60 year-old Timothy Ray Butts of Smith Road, had loose marijuana on his shirt and on the truck console.

During a search of the truck, 115 doses of oxycodone and 11 doses of alzapram were reportedly found.

Butts was charged with maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, trafficking in opium or heroin, possession with intent to manufacture sell or deliver a controlled substance, driving while impaired, possession of marijuana, and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.
