DARE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Authorities in Dare County last week arrested three people on narcotics-related charges.

Two of the people — 56-year-old Matthew Len McMurrin and 30-year-old  Santina Marice Norman of Manteo — were arrested Thursday, Oct. 13, after authorities executed a search for individuals selling cocaine.

Evidence for selling cocaine was seized at the scene on Fernando Street. Both McMurrin and Norman were charged with a dwelling for a controlled substance and have since been released on bond.

Authorities on Friday, Oct. 14, arrested 45-year-old Danny Allan Disney while investigating meth manufacturing in the Manns Harbor area.

A North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations team had responded to the area earlier last week to clean up a one-pot meth lab.

Disney has been charged with felonies: manufacturing of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursor and possession of pseudoephedrine following a prior methamphetamine conviction.

He is currently being held on a $75,000 secured bond.
