Authorities say they arrested a McDowell pair after they found meth during a traffic stop.

Deputy Jesse Hicks of the McDowell County Sheriff’s Office charged Dewayne Scott Cline, 50, of Harmony Grove Road, Nebo and Patrick Ryan Poteat, 24, of Cooper Pot Drive, Marion, with possession of methamphetamine and possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver schedule II controlled substance.

At 10:22 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 28, Deputies Jesse Hicks and Adam Burnette, along with K-9 Kessy, assisted the N.C. Highway Patrol with a traffic stop on Harmony Grove Road. Poteat was the driver of the vehicle, and Cline was a passenger. K-9 Kessy alerted on the right rear driver’s side of the vehicle. A subsequent search of the car led authorities to 44.7 grams of methamphetamine.

Cline received a $60,000 bond. Poteat received a $35,000 bond.
