Dozens of North Carolina drugs, weapons arrests

If you drive due east from Raleigh for about an hour and 20 minutes or so, you will come to Greenville and Pitt County, North Carolina. That is where law enforcement officials recently spent three days in pursuit of alleged offenders with outstanding warrants and who were believed to be breaking drug laws or to be in gangs.

More than three dozen police officers arrested more than five dozen people while serving more than 400 warrants over three days, according to a news report.

Operation Janus included officers from the Greenville Police Department, the North Carolina SBI, Pitt County Sheriff's Office, North Carolina Department of Public Safety and the federal government's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the U.S. Marshals Service. Sixty-one people were eventually arrested, according to the media report.

In addition, officers confiscated five firearms, as well as heroin valued at more than $80,000, cocaine pegged at more than $12,000, nearly $2,000 worth of marijuana and $8,100 in cash.

Charges leveled include possession of cocaine with intent to sell, distribution and delivery of cocaine, marijuana sales, maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of selling drugs, possession of heroin with the intent to sell, conspiracy to sell and deliver heroin, heroin sales, conspiracy to traffic heroin, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen gun, assault, armed robbery and probation violations.

One man was also arrested for homicide, while another was taken into custody on a charge of accessory after the fact in a first-degree murder.

Anyone in Raleigh facing any of these charges knows that these allegations must be addressed immediately with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney. You can contact Dysart Willis to discuss your legal options.
