Suspected Heroin Dealer Arrested

A suspected heroin dealer is behind bars after authorities say they found a sock stuffed with the drug from Mexico.

The Duplin County Sheriff's Office says it arrested Anthony Jamar James Monday on numerous heroin trafficking charges.

They say an investigation revealed he had hidden 92 packages of heroin from Mexico worth nearly two thousand dollars, in a sock stashed inside of his clothing.

They say he was planning to sell it in the Wallace area. James is in jail on a million dollar bond.

    Some doctors can now treat painkiller and heroin addiction in the privacy of their office with a monthly prescription of buprenorphine (Suboxone/Subutex). Bupe is abuse resistant and has a ceiling to its effects making accidental fatal overdoses unlikely. It also blocks other opioids for days, and is not euphoric to people tolerant to opioids. It has enough opioid effect to stop cravings and withdrawal allowing the patient and their family to make the necessary changes that will translate to sustained addiction remission. is a free service from the non-profit organization - National Alliance of Advocates for Buprenorphine Treatment ( it is a confidential way to find doctors certified to treat opioid addiction in their office.
