Thursday afternoon, SAFE Team deputies were conducting a checkpoint on Shaw’s Pond Road outside of Four Oaks and arrested 48 year-old Nicky Ray Barefoot of Meadowbrook Road, Benson after a small amount of suspected methamphetamine was found on the floorboard of the car he was operating.

Barefoot was charged with felony meth possession. He was transported to the Johnston County Jail and held under a $5,000 bond.
