1/2 Kilo Of Cocaine Seized; Suspected Trafficker Arrested

A half kilo of cocaine is off the streets and a suspected drug trafficker behind bars.

The Goldsboro/Wayne County Drug Squad says it began an investigation into drugs in the Hood Swamp area. The DEA and the Greenville Drug Task Force assisted them.

They searched a home on Peele Road and found approximately 500 grams of cocaine worth some $50,000. Abel Hernandez has been charged with trafficking cocaine.

The 40-year-old Hernandez is jailed on a half-million dollar bond.

    I'm glad they took this man off the streets but it's people like him that make all the hispanics look bad. Face it people not all Hispanics are criminals and NO they do not need to deport all the hispanics back to their country. There are a lot of hard working people in this state and it's not fair that people judge all of them for the stupidity of this individual!

    The Greenville Task force was used...hmmm...so does Wayne County pay for this? I think we have enough to keep them busy here in Greenville.

    Naw - we need no border protection. This dude probably walked across the border with the drugs after shooting someone with a gun he got from the FBI.

    More evidence that we need legislation to get illegal immigrants out of the state. Chances are this drug dealer had several "anchor babies" to protect his illegal status. Deport all of them!

      I agree with this above statement/request. How much further research would it take before the sensational headline was typed?
