BENSON – A limousine driver was jailed on a $245,000 bond following his arrest.  A narcotics detective with the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office stopped a Lincoln limousine on Highway 301 just north of Benson on Aug. 1st.

The driver, Michael Anthony Campbell, 53, of Raleigh, reportedly refused to allow deputies search the vehicle. A law enforcement K-9 responded to the scene and alerted on the vehicle. During a search, oxycodone and diazapam were reportedly found concealed inside the limo.
