Speeding Stop Yields Drug Bust

A suspected drug dealer is behind bars after getting pulled over for speeding.

Carteret County lawmen say a K-9 named Buck detected drugs in the car of a New Bern man during a traffic stop. Darrell Dennell Davis, 36, of Howard St. in New Bern was arrested and charged with felony possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana and possession.

A deputy pulled Davis over when he was clocked going 71 in a 55 mph zone. Authorities say they found nearly 30 grams of marijuana individually packaged for resale in Davis's car.

    Well that was just plain "smart". At least he could of not attracted attention to himself, and stayed within the speed limit...duh...i guess that's why he has to sell drugs, too stupid to get a job.

    Chris, a lot of the people who comment on these blogs advocate legalizing marijuana. They think it will reduce the drug problem. However, I think their cry is the result of faulty logic. The only thing that would happen is more people will be selling it and it will be more readily available to the addicts. That is not getting rid of the drug problem, my friend; that is pretending that there is no problem at all. I think marijuana is valuable for its medicinal purposes, but it should be treated just like any other pharmaceutical drug.

    Why was the dog brought on the scene in the first place for a traffic violation? There are people committing more serious crimes than carrying around some plants.

    Well Ed, you start a neighborhood up that houses and supplies these thug drug dealers and I will go along with the whole "lets let these thugs run up and down the road" theory.. One less bad guy on the street selling drugs. These guys are not exactly boy scouts out trying to earn grocery money to feed the poor...
