Five suspected drug traffickers are in jail and eighty-five pounds of marijuana seized, along with $35,000 in cash after a drug raid here in the East.
The Goldsboro/Wayne County Interagency Drug Task Force says it worked with the D.E.A., the SBI, New Bern police and the Lenoir and Johnston Sheriff Offices. The investigation led to the five arrests on Monday.
Facing numerous drug charges are Christopher Smith who is being held on a $5,000,000 bond; Damian Green whose bond is set at $5,000,000; and Andrea Reid-Smith, being held on a $1,000,000 bond. Authorities say all three lived at a home on Southfork Place and are in this country illegally from Jamacia. They say Green is also wanted by immigration officials for illegally re-entering the country.
Also charged in Lenoir County are two New Bern men, William McCarter and Roy Holloway. Their bonds were set at $250,000.00 secured.
A firearm, two vehicles and other property were also seized during the investigation.
