Dispute About Child Leads To Drug Bust In Greenville

A dispute about the welfare of a child led to a drug bust in Greenville.

Greenville police were called out to a home at the New Town housing complex around 10 a.m. on Thursday.

When lawmen arrived they found 29-year-old Kevin Williams and 22-year-old Veronica Barrett in a dispute with their neighbor.

The neighbor reported that the couple allowed Barrett’s 2-year-old daughter to wander around the apartment complex parking lot unattended.

While investigating the dispute, police found 14 grams of marijuana packaged for resale in Williams and Barrett’s apartment.

They were both arrested and charged. Williams was given a $10,000 secured bond, while Barrett received a $5,000 secured bond.

    Everyone is ready to judge these two black people about letting their 2 year old wander around ok they are really idiots yes but Obama has nothing to do with it. Talk about the man that killed his two kids in the house fire. Did Obama has something to do with that? oh yeah that man is white.

      If they have a prescription, it's legal. How do you know they are pill popping? How may soccer games have you been too, and just how many of these moms have you witnessed popping bills? AND did they let their babies run around in a parking lot at Night alone? Where is the data that says 98% of the pill popping soccer moms voted for Bush? You have nothing, sit down.

    Normally I wouldn't waste time posting but since there seem to be so many idiots posting I can't help but to educate them. Obama is not responsible for every idiot on welfare by the way there are more whites on welfare than anyother race. Look in the mirror and place the blame where it really belongs. Then go ask Bush can you borrow a few dollars of the billions he is making off oil because he started a war.

      i agree. except the story at hand involves two black people who let their baby run all around at night. i dont care what color they are, and thinking they are horrible parents does not make me a racist.

        At what point are people "old enough" to have an opinion? It's always interesting to me how people want to shut others up because they disagree and give the most inane reasons why. But I am interested - I remember the Gulf War, does my opinion count? Or do I need to remember the Korean War before I am allowed an opinion?

    It is so amazing that anytime there is a problem or issue with a black family or mother, all these behind the scene racist white people, appear!! Just a little FYI for you all....all black mothers arent relying on the government to raise their kids, and all black households are not fatherless!! WOW I bet that shocked some of you, right?!! By the way if you felt that black mothers and women were so useless and poor caregivers, why are you incompetent white folks trusting your parents, aunts, uncles, and other relatives to be cared for by them?? Most of you have some relative in a nursing home or rest home of some sort, and most of the CNA's are BLACK....however you still choose to get on the internet and act soooo conservative and Racist by always speaking bad about the same people You trust to care for your parents. WOW....not only are you hypocritical but you are ignorant as well!! HA

      im conservative..i am NOT racist! stop letting the media spoon feed your brain; there was just an incredibly bipartisan yahoo! article that not only linked racism to lower intelligence (fair enough, i agree--racists come in all colors though)--AS WELL AS conservatism (linking racism and conservatism--so, black racists are conservative?yeah we know where they were trying to go with it) anyways, in the name of not stereotyping, uh, lets not stereotype, okay?

      Sorry "Goodbye" That's not his child. Maybe this young lady needs to tend to her child instead of having random males around her child! Don't assume everything you see is correct!
