LAURINBURG — The brother of a man shot to death last week was among four people arrested on gun and drug charges this week, according to Laurinburg police
The arrest came as part of a traffic stop and was unrelated to the Jan. 31 shooting death of 20-year-old Jaquan M. McKeithan.
An officer was patrolling South Caledonia Road Tuesday when he observed Juanathon McKeithen as a front right passenger of a green Mercury Mystique. Police said the officer stopped the car because of outstanding warrants for Juanathon McKeithen.
