A traffic stop in Lincoln County led to the arrest of two men Friday, after authorities said they found more than four ounces of heroin in the suspects’ vehicle.

Camden Michael Nolen, 30, of Lincolnton, and Jordan Ray Vanzandt, 21, of Iron Station, were arrested by Lincoln County Sheriff’s personnel who made a traffic stop around the 6800 block of Old Plank Road, officials said.

Deputies and narcotic officers said they found more than four ounces of heroin in the vehicle, but less than 14 ounces.

Nolen has been charged with two felony counts of trafficking in heroin and is being held at the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under $30,000 secured bond, the sheriff’s office said. Vanzandt has been charged with one felony count of trafficking and is jailed under $15,000 secured bond.
