Deputies nab Pitt County couple in prescription drug investigation

Posted: Updated:
STOKES, N.C. -

A Pitt County couple is behind bars after a 3 month investigation into the sale of prescription drugs.

49-year-old Walter Bullock and 47-year-old Joann Bullock are  in the Pitt County Detention Center. Their arrests come after the Pitt County Sheriff's Office, assisted by the Martin County Sheriff's Office and Williamston Police Dept., searched their home on Highway 30 in Stokes.

During the search, deputies found more than 600 oxycodon pills, approximately 12 ounces of marijuana and around $20,000 in cash.

Because Water Bullock is a convicted felon, approximately 30 firearms were seized from the residence.

Both Walter and Joann Bullock were arrested for trafficking opiates by possession, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, and maintaining a residence for the storage and use of controlled substances. Their bonds were set at $250,000 each.

Deputies say this investigation is ongoing and other charges are pending.
