Two Arrested On Drug Charges

Saturday proved to be a busy day for Wayne County lawmen whose drug squad put two suspected dealers behind bars Saturday.

Samuel Jackson of Winterville and Jeffrey Thomas Bass of Edenton were arrested during a vehicle stop on Stanley Chapel Church Road just outside of Mount Olive. Both were charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana with the intent to sell and deliver. In addition, Bass faces charges of maintaining a vehicle for keeping and selling a controlled substance.

Bonds were set at more than 100,000 dollars each.
