A 6-week drug bust operation turned up pounds of pot, pills, coke and heroin that otherwise would be on the streets of Pitt County.

Greenville Police say over the last 6 weeks, the Greenville Regional Drug Task Force made up of several agencies intercepted and seized approximately 13 pounds of marijuana, 1 ounce of heroin, 9 ounces of powder cocaine, 1.5 ounces of crack cocaine and 150 ecstasy pills throughout Greenville and Pitt County.

Police aren't releasing the names of the people charged due to ongoing investigations.

Members of the Greenville Regional Drug Task Force include the Greenville Police Department, the Pitt County Sheriff's Office, the State Bureau of Investigation and the Farmville Police Department.

    Wish they had taken care of the drug dealing going on in my neighborhood over the last several years. Nice middle-class neighborhood with one family distributing pot and cocaine in broad daylight. Traffic was unbelievable. Cops knew, but never did anything but bust them for underage drinking parties. Thank god the kid is in an apartment in GV now and probably filling orders there. Never gets caught.

    That's all they could come up with in 6 weeks? Give me a patrol car and a badge for a night and I guarantee I would get what they seized ten fold.

    whats so bad is all the undrcover work and cops putting their life on the line and the thugs get caught go to court and the judges slap them on he hand and give them probation. I say if you do the crime do the time first offense or not.

    and more drugs will come in right behind while we continue to spend billions of tax dollars on a war that's never worked and continues to create a larger and larger black market.

    And the fine people of the area want to thank the local government for doing EVERYTHING they can to ensure that the local thug-life have no source of income, thereby GUARANTEEING a continued rise in violent crime, as the thugs turn to other means to make their money. Who cares if some junkies are using smack? Who cares if some scumbag is smoking crack rocks? Who really cares if some college students are doing bong-hits? Without the "revenue stream" of recreational drugs, the local thug-life will use more violent means to make their "benjamins"--home invasions, muggins, armed robberies, etc. Yeah, thanks a lot, Pitt County and City of Greenville--your solution to the crime problem is going to result in more crime, mark my words...

      Selling drugs is just as illegal as robbery,home invasions etc; Good job to the brave officers involved. Thugs need to find a real vocation.

          I do agree that these thugs will resort to other crimes, some more violent, to make money but there is more the drug problem then a college student taking a bong hit or some "junkie" scoring smack on the street. Even with drugs available, the junkie will do whatever he or she can to get the funds for it. Also, these drugs such, even the harder ones like cocaine or heroin, are making their way into our school systems. These dealers will target anyone, not just the man on the street or college kid. Kind of a double edge sword here.

        Well now that they just lost all of their capital they probably aren't happy campers. They lost their product and their profit and have just posted bond. They have no money at all and probably owe their dealer money if he fronted them the drugs that were seized. Realizing the dealer may hurt or kill them if they don't pay up, what is a man to do? With no money and no way to make money crime is the only option. Lastly, a vocation is a term for an occupation to which a person is specially drawn or for which they are suited, trained or qualified. Looks like they had already found their vocation.

      Agreed. It's time to let people choose their own path. If they want to smoke crack rocks for the rest of their life, overdose on some pills, or relax with a joint that is perfectly fine. As long as they aren't hindering others in society from moving on. This is population control, and it is essential for us to continue life on this earth. I think you've made a great point.

    Hey hey, classy looking zip lock bags for the weed there. Remember when it came cut off of a moldy round paper wrapped chunk inside a plain plastic bag. "Medical weed" was $15. an ounce back then.
