A routine traffic stop over the weekend led to four arrests, and the confiscation of a large quantity of methamphetamine.

“After a traffic stop along 441, our officers pulled over two vehicles, which resulted in the arrest of four individuals,” said Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland. “We did retrieve a large quantity of meth at the time and the investigation into the incident remains ongoing. At this time, we do expect additional charges to be forthcoming as we complete our investigation.”

Jeremy Kenneth Stanley, 19; James Fred Hurst, 41; Elizabeth Anne Tice, 18; and Adam Joshua Sanders, 28, all of Franklin, were arrested and each charged with one felony count trafficking methamphetamine, one felony count of possession with intent to manufacture, sell, distribute, a scheduled II controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of maintain a vehicle or a dwelling place for a controlled substance.


Based on court documents on file at the Macon County Clerk of Court’s office, Debbie Mosteller, former Nantahala Volunteer Fire Department (NFD) treasurer, may have taken a Disney vacation and secured $20,000 worth of new computers, all at the expense of Macon County taxpayers.

Based on search warrants filed on June 11 by State Bureau of Investigation Special Agent J.M. Schick, the Nantahala Volunteer Fire Department, specifically Mosteller, is being investigated for embezzlement that allegedly began in 2009. The investigation, which was launched in May 2014, has already uncovered 74 checks endorsed by Mosteller from 2009 to 2013, which are thought to have purchased $20,000 worth of Dell products and $6,500 for a Walt Disney World Vacation.


For as long as he can remember, Macon County Sheriff’s Office Major Andy Shields only wanted to be one of three things when he grew up: a farmer to be able to spend his days outdoors working with his hands, a garbage man because nothing was cooler than being able to ride on the back of the truck all day, or a police officer, to help other people. When he was just five years old, an encounter with the local police chief solidified what he wanted to be when he grew up, and gave him a role model that would shape his 30 year career in law enforcement.
