Posted: Updated:

Two men are under arrest for trafficking methamphetamine after an undercover drug sting in Lenoir County.

On June 11, 2013 the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Detectives conducted an undercover drug operation that resulted in the arrest of two suspects in the Seven Springs area of Lenoir County.

William Robinson, 24, of Goldsboro and Derik Foster of Mount Olive sold suspected "crystal meth" to undercover detectives on three different occasions; June 7, 10, and 11. Each time Robinson and Foster were present and a part of the illegal transaction.

During the final purchase on June 11, detectives prepared to arrest the two. Detectives arranged to purchase one ounce of methamphetamine from Robinson and Foster. Robinson agreed to sell it to them and met them at the same location as the two previous purchases, which was at the intersection of Hwy. 903 North and Davis Hardy Road.  Detectives conducted surveillance of this operation and saw Robinson and Foster arrive to conduct the sale of the methamphetamine. After the drug transaction was completed, Robinson and Foster and were immediately taken into custody without incident.  The drugs seized during the operation have a street value of approximately $1,500.

Sheriff Chris hill said in a release, "Our citizens should know that we are not going to tolerate meth production, sale or use in Lenoir County.  This is third methamphetamine arrest our narcotics division has made in the past month.  We will continue to find these dealers and cut this drug off at the source.  Tips, such as those received in this case, can be critical pieces of information to facilitate the investigation and arrest those individuals who are polluting our community with this nasty concoction of readily available products." 

Robinson was confined in the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office Detention Center under a $210,000.00 secured bond and Foster under a $200,000.00 secured bond.
