Drug Round Up in Lenoir County

12 suspected drug users were rounded up by a number of law enforcement agencies Saturday morning.

After several months of investigation by State Bureau of Investigations, Lenoir, and Greene County Sheriff's, and the Kinston and Pink Hill Police Departments, 12 suspected drug users were arrested on a number of drug charges and fire arm violations. The busts also seized cocaine in two different locations. Deputies say Pink Hill was the main focus of the law enforcement force, because the small town has seen a lot of crime, but doesn't have the funding to do much about it. Those arrested will be interviewed as part of an ongoing investigation.
