ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – An Orangeburg man caught with drugs in his SUV during a trip with his children has been convicted by a federal jury, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina.

Anthony Cyquan Herring, 40, was convicted last week on charges of distribution of heroin and fentanyl, along with associated firearms violations including possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

His charges stem from a traffic stop by Nash County, N.C. Sheriff Keith Stone on I-95 southbound for speeding.

Stone smelled marijuana coming from Herring’s SUV, which other deputies confirmed.

The ensuing search of his SUV resulted in deputies finding over 36 grams of heroin and fentanyl, 50 grams of cocaine, marijuana, distribution paraphernalia, $2,200 cash and a loaded firearm.

Deputies discovered Herring’s young children in the back of the SUV, sleeping and urinating in bottles as their dad drove through the night from Connecticut on the way to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the release said.
