Tip Leads To Pitt County Drug Bust

Two people from Wilmington were arrested after deputies say they found a pound of high-grade marijuana in their car in Greenville.

Deputies say 24-year-old Richard Bradley Smith and 22-year-old Amanda Grace Difulio were arrested Friday on one count each of Possession with Intent to Sell and Distribute Marijuana, and Maintaining a Vehicle for the Sale and Storage of a Controlled Substance. According to a press release, the drugs seized from their car was estimated to be worth $4,800.

Narcotics detectives stopped the car on Evans St. after receiving a tip that the two were going to deliver the drugs to a home in Pitt County.

Officials say the bonds for both Smith and Difulio were set at $15,000. According to jail records, they were no longer behind bars Monday morning.

    I agree with SMH, because the once caught aren't black, comments from the influx of rednecks in Greenville are nill. Thank God for small miracles in that they weren't black. Naturally, they'll get a slap on the hand in Pitt County because they're white.

    This has nothing to do with race, this is a society that is failing if we do not bring back a moral compass, really punish people, not a slap on the risk, and go after the bigger fish in this arena. Stop glorifying this in movies, music videos, and look at that filthy half time show. Time for a change across America, has nothing to do with race or economic status. How many lives have to be lost or destroyed before people get it?

      Probably none if you're talking about marijuana. When's the last time you say a television show about how addictive marijuana is?

    They are white, hmmmm. That means the racist comments will be at a minimum, and they comments in general won't go past 100

    Lets set the record straight, the only, the one and only reason why pot will never be legal is because of legal bribery, aka lobbyist's, specifically pharmaceutical lobbyist's. Politicians, aka the government, have big pockets to fill and pharmaceutical companies have a lot to give. Until this legal type of bribery is made unlawful and people realize the commodity this weed is, things will be just as they are. Now, $4300.00 for a pound is a little bit on the high side, but it must of been some killer weed. How much could a farmer stand to make with a few acre's of land ?

      Marijuana would be a multi-billion dollar industry and create tens of thousands of jobs if it were legal. The government would make hundreds of millions in revenu off of taxes.

    Another drug bust in Pitt County? Imagine that. I agree with the thought of legalizing marijuana. Tax it, and use the income to focus some more attention on the harder drugs. Those are the ones that actually cause harm.

    Your right, they charged me with trafficking by possession. And yes, you can say I was lucky, it carries a 7-10 minimum mandatory , and it's only mandatory if the judge wants it to be. I went to court with my family, church members, my employer, and close friends. When a judge see's that the best thing for you is to not put you in prison, he has the right to impose a lighter sentence. I had a year house arrest, 200 hrs of cumminity service, and 5 years probation with a 5k fine, plus what's called a unauthorized substance tax which was about $600. Which it probably helped that I got one of the best lawyers in eastern nc. I thank the lord every day that I have the family that loves me and cares about me, and that I had a chance to make my wrongs right. I had to put my faith in the lord and he put me on the road to success. These two individuals should do the same thing and they too will have a brighter outcome

      I'm glad you are on the right track. People make mistakes. Learn from those mistakes, pay the penalty, and move on. I wish more people would do like you have done, instead of getting off and going right back to dealing. God bless you.

      Well if it were a minority in the report they would not have had "HIGH GRADE POT' that is grown in the great US of A but instead by cartels where none of the money stays inside the states. LEGALIZE IT
