SHELBY, N.C. - On February 2, 2024, the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office Community Interdiction Team (CIT) conducted a vehicle stop on South Lafayette Street.

During the vehicle stop Deputies located approximately 793 grams of methamphetamine and a concealed firearm.

Deputies arrested Justin Adam Miller, 40, of Vale, and took him before a Magistrate where he received a $750,000 secured bond and was placed in the Cleveland County Detention Center.

The street value of the seized drugs was approximately $50,000. Miller was charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine and Carrying a Concealed Weapon.

“The Sheriff’s Office will continue to make drug investigations a high priority,” Sheriff Alan Norman said. “Statistics have shown for years that drug use leads to other crimes, in particular breaking and entering and larcenies, where users have to steal to fund their habit.”

Sheriff Norman requests that anyone with information on drug dealers in their neighborhood contact the Vice/Narcotics Division of the Sheriff’s Office at 704-484-4987 or 707-484-4831.
