Three people were arrested Tuesday night in Currituck County after being found in possession of illegal narcotics during a routine traffic stop.

The Currituck County Sheriff’s Office says dispatch was notified around 6:00 p.m. of a 2005 Pontiac speeding and traveling recklessly just north of the Wright Memorial Bridge.

Deputies were able to locate and stop the vehicle in the 6400 block of Caratoke Highway.

The occupants were identified as 21-year-old Cameron Chad Cofflin (driver), 21-year-old Charleton Blake Mays, and 23-year-old Cody Edward Steuart.

All three were found in possession of cocaine, Xanax and marijuana and each were charged with Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance, Simple Possession of a Schedule IV Controlled Substance, Possession of a Schedule VI (misdemeanor), and Posession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Additionally, Cofflin was charged with Resisting a Public Officer.

    Wow. This is the most ridiculous article I have ever read. You can just picture how excited the writer was, including names and pictures of three young adults. I find myself asking why? Why is this news? Why is this so important? And how did the publisher even get a job?

    This is NOT a good image. I am not from this town but it’s safe to assume the writer and publisher need to “pursue other options” how could this be so detailed and be legal? The answer is: ITS NOT. Innocent until proven guilty? Anyone?

    Now, this particularly interesting excuse for a news station can go back to reporting front page news about the local tobacco crop yield.

    So, as your so special I will leave you with this impression to all that were involved in creating this riveting masterpiece you call “the best news story since the confederacy won” (they lost get over it) and that is..

    Congratulations! Your mediocre! Spend more time trying to fog up a mirror and control+alt+delete your unbelievably pathetic existence. I could do this job in my sleep if I had to follow by this example.

    Don’t reply to me either, Publisher and/or writer I’m currently only giving wisdom, I don’t accept ADVICE from anyone trying to intentionally ruin young adults lives even though they are most certainly “Innocent until proven guilty”.

      Its not fair to post this and their pictures everywhere before they have even been to court. I know one of these people, actually all three of them and ill just tell you that they are NOT hardened criminals. They come from good families. They are young and made a mistake. No need to try and ruin their lives over this and assume they are bad people because they aren’t. They still have a lot going for them but its articles like this that ruin that chance. This is ridiculous. It makes me sick when people make assumptions and just want others to fail after one mistake.

        Throw them in jail and let them learn. Nobody gets free passes. And this is public record, not slander.

      Sorry Don, I didn’t realize I had replied to your post. I meant that to be separate. However, I absolutely agree with you!

    It’s not slander and is 100 percent legal. Arrests are public record. I’m sorry the three guys got put on blast. However, it’s not illegal. Don your comment would be taken a little more seriously if you used the correct version of “your” and “you’re.”
