Bladen County Drug Bust Nabs Six
Six people didn’t have a very good Easter when they were busted with 20 pounds of cocaine that has a street value of more than $1 million.
The group that spend the holiday behind bars were charged with bringing cocaine into the area on March 20th in Bladen County North Carolina. The Sheriff, Steve Bunn, said that he has never seen a cocaine seizure of this size in his 30 year career. He has also said that he is not sure of the MO as to why the drugs were brought into the county, but what he does know is that the cocaine was distributed widely in the area.
Also seized were cars, four-wheelers, and a tractor that are destined to be sold to benefit the community. A percentage of the money is transferred over to the community to be used for purposes outside of the county’s budget.
It is hoped that crime in the area will decrease since drugs seem to be the driving force behind the crime rate in both Bladen and Columbus Counties. It is also felt that this bust will save a number of lives. There have been a lot of people on the street hurt by this drug bust because they were expecting to have the drugs delivered to them over the weekend.
As for the six who were arrested, it is currently being investigated whether or not they were in the country illegally because it appears that they are all Mexican natives.
