27 suspected drug dealers arrested

TARBORO — In a joint effort, law enforcement gave suspected drug dealers in Edgecombe County an early Christmas present. The Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office and Tarboro Police Narcotics Detectives used three days last week to sweep up 27 suspected drug dealers in a continuing effort that started back in the spring. Edgecombe County Probation and Parole officers assisted in the roundup.

At least 12 of the suspects arrested are repeat offenders and seven are currently on supervised probation.

"This type of good cooperation between the two agencies and the citizens complaints helped us yield good results," Sheriff James Knight said. "Numerous suspected drug dealers have cases pending against them and arrests will continue into 2014."

Tarboro Chief Damon Williams echoed Knight's comments, adding the recent narcotics arrests are part of the ongoing effort between the two departments involving illegal sales and possession of narcotics.

The detectives executed a search warrant on a residence in Rocky Mount at 513 S. Vyne St. where they found 46 grams of raw heroin, two grams of cocaine, two percocets, digital scales, heroin bags, rubber stamps to stamp the heroin bags and  a large sum of US currency.
