The Greenville Regional Drug Task Force says the traffic stop turned up 5 pounds of meth last month in Pitt County on Highway 33 and the suspect, Alejandro Estrada, is still behind bars after his November 19th arrest for trafficking by possession of methamphetamine.

The Greenville investigators had help with the 6 month investigation by the DEA, and the Pitt County Sheriff's Office. Officers say the meth originally came from Mexico.

        They dont make me nervous.I dont have any money for them to steal.Five pounds of Methamphetamine is quite significant and I know the local boys just arent that smart.Their street level snitches do not associate with anyone on this level.I was just saying........ :)

    Where have you been living? Greenville already has a problem with drug cartels. Some call them GANGS.

There was cross border violence and gangs reported, shots taken at our citizens. Since Obama went down there and declared everything safe at our borders, they quit reporting it. Go to this site and search border violence and drug arrests if you really want a picture of what's going on down there.

      The police need some time to work the case, dope work is tricky.

    Still wondering why we want these illegal's deported? one look at the court calenders would show you.they broke law's getting here so why should any other law matter to them? that E-Verify is a joke when they use fake names.turn them in to the I.R.S that's how AL Capone was caught.

      Obama has set up a free (taxpayer expense) hot line for all illegals that are arrest so they can know their rights and how to protect themselves from the law.

        Good. The Constitution shouldn't only apply to natural born American citizens. It's the rights of the people. It's fine to deport immigrants, it's not fine to treat them like sub-human trash.

      That doesn't always work. It is surprisingly easy for an illegal to purchase a name with a valid Social Security number. They can then obtain a driver's license and a good job. As long as they pay taxes on that income, the IRS could care less.

      I agree, me have so many illegals over here and we really don't know who they are. They could have fled Mexico for killing people and be working in your yard cuttin the grass, noone would be the wiser. Nobody from congress wants to stepup and take our country back from these illegals, this will go down in history as one of the down turns of our once great country of the USA.

    If the united states didn't have so many druggies the mexicans would not need to bring drugs over the border. so it's not just the Mexicans fault they're just making a profit of what americans want.

      You right but less dope means less dopeheads. More dope on the streets means guess what? more dopeheads.

      Si, they funnel the legal money also from the legal businesses, back home. Some Mexican businesses are legit but alot are not.
