Traffic Stop Leads To $450,000 In Cocaine

A traffic stop in Greenville led to the seizure of 4.5 kilograms in cocaine worth $450,000.

Greenville Police say Johny Flores and Manuel Reyes, both of Texas, are now charged with several counts of trafficking and are each behind bars on 1.5-million dollars bond.

Police say their pickup truck was stopped Sunday for a traffic violation at Highway 264 and Mozingo Road. A drug detection K-9 smelled narcotics and that's when police seized the drugs.

    Although taking drugs off the street in Greenville is a good thing, busting these small-time local dealers and distributors will come with an unintended consequence. Without the income from the sale of marijuana and cocaine (mostly to college students), you will be GUARANTEED to see the massive summertime spike in violent crime continue throughout the fall. When the thugs and dealers lose their drug sale income, they have to get their money somewhere else--and that will be through armed robberies, home-invasions, and muggings. Mark my words...

    Another case of "tail-gating" I'll bet. Like the one several weeks ago, the tail-gating Dodge pick-up that had drugs in the intake manifold. "We (several various police agencies) noticed you were following that other vehicle awfully close. Would you mind if we sniff your intake manifold? I'ts for your own protection, of course." Was the driver also cited for a moving violation in this case?

    In my opinion they did not do a good job at hiding the fact that it was a "informant" who set this up, how often is the K-9 happen to jsut be there, well i guess they could have called the K-9 to the scene, yes the drugs are off the street for now, BUT, again I cant tell by this report that they were set up!

    I don't think the drug cartel in Mexico is having to do with anything about the shootings in Gville. It might just be a drop off point for larger locations up an down the east coast. Where is the DEA in all of this. Where locals working with Feds?

      The DEA and Federal agencies are at play. Don't worry about that. Just because you don't hear their names thrown around doesn't mean that they aren't there.

    To all involved. Well done. I am thankful for the informant who came forward the police and sheriffs. We have two criminals behind bars and we do not have to worry about them. I really don't like the word snitch because it is as if we wanted them to get away with it. So I prefer informant. good job all. They still do not pay law enforcement enough for the job they do. This include the detention officers. The job is too dangerous for the pennies.

      An informant is the same thing, and we all know what happens to snitches.
