"Drug Roundup" Nets More Than Two Dozen Suspects

More than two dozen drug suspects in Martin County were arrested early Friday morning after a “drug roundup” conducted by law enforcement officers.

The operation began at 5:30 a.m. and was the result of an investigation that took place over the past several months.

Officers with the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Williamston Police Department, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement, North Carolina State Highway Patrol North Carolina Probation / Parole and the North Carolina National Guard were involved in the operation.

Officers say they were able to conduct this operation because of the help of concerned citizens in the area.

    A roundup is always a good thing. Its not a good thing when you areest the same ones over and over again. Are these the only ones selling drugs in this county? If so, put them away forever and your drug problem is solved. Cmon guys. Do the work. For every one you arrested there are probably 3 or 4 more you don't know about.Work the county, not just the towns.

    I guess we'll have to wait til the news paper comes out to find out who was arrested. Why aren't the names posted here like they were last time? I guess Mr Gibbs is trying to make up for the 3 jobs he took away from the Sheriff's office and gave himself the money the 3 men were making. Oh well ..what comes around goes around. I guess the newspaper will be full this week...

    Now if we can just get Seth Edwards, the DA everyone elected, to prosecute without reducing the charges to a seatelt violation. It would also be nice if he would prosecute them in a reasonable time instead of 1-2 years form now. LEO already has their evidence and nothing to wait for. Most are repeat offenders and will NOT have to miss work to come to court, if you know what I mean.

    Don't try to be "cute," Anonymous @10:55. This is serious business. Our Law Enforcement Officers (all of them) are the ones who have to go in harms way to catch the bad guys and charge them. It's the duty of the court, once the criminals are in handcuffs, to assign their punishment, not our Law Enforcement Officers! As for Martin County, we are very fortunate to have some of the finest and most determined Law Enforcement Leaders and Officers who are doing their best to make a positive difference for Martin County. Each and everyone of them is greatly appreciated! I personally hope they keep up the good work! I am proud of them all!

    They will just hire them to work for them and let them off, no big deal.....

    Very impressive - God bless all of our LEO's and we all should pray for their safety, as the risks to those involved in doing this are so high. Thank you all & God bless, BHG
