Major Drug Bust In Beaufort County

Authorities in the east have made a major drug arrest.

On Friday the Beaufort County Sheriffs Office arrested 38 year old Christopher Jarvis and 36 year old Jennifer Jarvis of Elliott Road in Bath for trafficking in marijuana as well as manufacturing marijuana.

Investigators responded to a complaint about the Jarvis residence and could smell the odor of marijuana.

A search of the residence found 40 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $120,000 dollars.

A 44 Magnum pistol and Remington shotgun were seized as well.

Both were placed in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $15,000 dollar bond.

    FL with Love on Oct 10, 2009 at 05:12 PM ...You trust a community to raise your kids and I'll take care of mine.It seems to me that when outsiders get involved in most families lives they don't have the best influence on them. No,I'll make decisions for mine,leaving kids for the neighbors to raise is like turning them loose on hell's playground.No I don't get it when you defend someone" illegally selling drugs".It is a criminal that does it.You act like these people just rolled down a hill of back luck and stumbled onto a blessing.Then you criticize and judge other for not wanting them it in their nieghborhoods.Some of you people act like the people that don't want drugs and dealers around their homes are the criminals.YOU DO THE SAME THING EVERY DRUG USER/SELLER/ADDICT of any drug I know of does!You make them the victim and everyone else abusive and cruel.Get the crap out of our communities,if it is illegal stop it.No leader that has used DRUGS makes it OKIE DOKIE.Wrong is wrong ! ! !

    You NAILED IT!!! Cannibus does NOT make you lazy. If you are lazy or a procrastinator by nature, then pot won't change that. But it isn't responsible for it, either. I know many, MANY productive people who use it regularly. Successful, hardworking people. The ignorance about this drug just boggles my mind. The stupidest argument of all, made by our former president (a former user himself, btw) is that it's a "Gateway Drug". What kind of argument is that? I've never known a pot smoker, a crackhead or a heroin addict that didn't start out by drinking MILK!!! Outlaw milk, IMMEDIATELY!!! It leads to every bad habit on earth. No one ever did anything bad without first drinking milk. That's the REAL gateway drug. Eliminate cows and breasts!!! (And people who are CLUELESS about the benefits of Marijuana.) Seriously, as a young man who experimented with several drugs, I was MUCH more likely to go out and purchase Cocaine after a few beers than I ever was after smoking a joint. MUCH more likely.

    For those of you who think cannabis is so terrible and turns you into a stupid lazy bum, you should take a look at the lives of some of the richest people in America. Bill Gates - Not only admitted using the devil's plant "MARIJUANA", but also admitted to using LSD. Guess what. His net worth is 1000x yours. Cannabis doesn't make you lazy. Richard Branson - Admitted to smoking marijuana his entire life and went from selling cd's out of the back of his car to taking a swim in one of the lakes on his private island. Cannabis does not make you lazy. People are in control of their own destiny, and if you're lazy, you're probly not going very far whether or not you smoke cannabis. It's time for Americans to open their eyes.

    I noticed that similar charges in Pitt County have bonds like $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 and this couple received a $15,000 bond. Wow either the RACE is an issue or Pitt County is wat off base with its HIGH bond tactics.

    i would work three jobs and move to a one room apartment with my three small children before i ever thought of selling drugs. not only are drugs illegal, ruin lives, but dealing invites crime. i wouldnt have that stuff NEAR my kids for any reason-someone might want to rip me off and take out my whole family just to make a point and leave no witnesses. im thankful that these kids ARE safe, and hate that other kids are cruel--they have no idea what these kids are going through. sadly--very sadly, the parents are to blame for them not having a normal life again. they didnt murder anyone, thats true, but they tore apart their family with a stupid decision. ive been desperately poor in my life, i know what thats like. its not a good feeling. if i had as many friends as the jarvis' did, i would ask for whatever help (not necesarily money) i could get.

    I went to school with a kid named Chris jarvis in Washington County. The age fits the guy I went to school with. Does anyone know if this is that same guy? If so, I would have to agree that this WAS a fine person and probably still is. Everyone makes a mistake and in this economy, although it is improving, folks are taking whatever means necessary to provide for their fams. This one got caught but how many others haven't?? Not saying what they did was right but don't act like he murdered someone.

    All of the Jarvis children are well rounded, good kids. None of them have ever really gotten in trouble at school, and make pretty good grades. Their parents raised them well. We all make mistakes. I'm sure all of you have done something you truely wish you hadn't in your life. They should NOT lose their kids. Imagine how hard it would be for the kids. They've had their parents completely involved in their life and the publicity of this is making it impossible for the kids to continue their normal lives. Other kids at school are cruel. I'm sure they have to listen to all the whispers and gossip. None of this should be blamed on the kids. & the Jarvis' are great people. They've just made some wrong choices & big mistakes, just like we all have. I love the Jarvis'. They're really great. May God bless them.
