Police: Major Heroin Distributors Arrested

Two suspects described as major heroin distributors by Greenville Police are under arrest. One of them is a fugitive.

Police arrested 47 year-old Samuel Wesley Buford and 33 year-old Rolando Quinones, both of Greenville, in the Colonial Mall parking lot Tuesday night.

Police say they seized about 600 dosage units of heroin and approximately 14 grams of powder heroin with a combined street value of over $15,000.

Both men faces various drug related charges. Police also say Quinones was on parole in New York for an armed robbery conviction and after violating his parole, he became a fugitive and has been on the run for several years.

    Lets just hope they get a serious judge that will hand out the maximum sentence for each offense.
