Two men were arrested Wednesday afternoon after being found apparently unconscious in downtown Whiteville.
The Whiteville Police Department said Hunter Mcrae Morgan, 35, of Lake Waccamaw, and Owen Hobson Morgan, 27, of Wilmington, were found passed out in a gold Mercedes automobile in the 800 block of Madison Street. Whiteville Narcotics officers were called to the scene around 3:20 p.m.
