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.


  1. It’s a damn shame that grown ass people can’t even act like grown adults. They rather be out here doing damn drugs than working a public job. It’s a shame and what a disgrace to our children. What example are these people leading. Come on guys wake up!!!!

  2. He does have a job. He works for a company in
    Kenly. You’re right, it is a shame, but we all sin, no one is perfect.
    But maybe instead of judging him, let’s pray for him. We all have made
    poor choices at some point in our lives, but don’t look down on someone
    unless you’re helping them up. I’ve known many people addicted to drugs whom have recovered and are now living a sober life.
