Two arrested in drug trafficking bust

North Carolina authorities arrested two men in early January for their alleged roles in a drug trafficking operation. The bust led to the seizure of a significant amount of heroin and cocaine.

According to media accounts, officers with the Greenville Regional Drug Task Force and the Pitt County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit executed a traffic stop on Reedy Branch Road in Winterville around 8 p.m. on Jan. 3. The stop was made based on information authorities obtained during a two-month investigation into drug trafficking activities in the area. After the defendants, who were aged 43 and 36, were pulled over, officers searched their vehicle and allegedly uncovered 2 kilograms of heroin, 1 kilogram of cocaine and $32,840 in cash. Two firearms and three vehicles were also seized during the course of the investigation.

The 43-year-old defendant, who lives on the 600 block of Davenport Farm Road, was charged with conspiracy to traffic in heroin and conspiracy to traffic in cocaine. He was transported to the Pitt County Detention Center and held under a $1.5 million secured bond. The 36-year-old defendant, who lives on the 3200 block of Sherwood Drive, was charged with multiple counts of conspiracy to traffic in heroin and cocaine. He was taken to the same jail and held on a $3 million secured bond. According to authorities, further charges are pending. The Greenville Regional Drug Task Force is operated with the assistance of several law enforcement agencies, including the Greenville Police Department, Winterville Police Department, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, East Carolina University Police Department and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Law enforcement officers must follow certain procedures when executing traffic stops and conducting searches. A drug charges criminal defense lawyer could review an arrest record and determine if the defendant's civil rights were violated. If they were, the charges could be dismissed.
