A traffic stop Wednesday near Four Oaks resulted in the apprehension of a local man wanted on a felony warrant in Florida.

Around 2:07am, a deputy stopped a car for a traffic violation on Keen Road just off US 701 South.  An occupant in the vehicle, Michael John Muse, 27, of Goldsboro, was wanted by the Hardee County, Florida Sheriff’s Office on a warrant from the Wauchula Police Department for failing to appear in court on a criminal charge of failure to return lease equipment.

Muse was transported to the Johnston County Jail where he was held without bond pending extradition to Florida.
