Former Greenville narcotics detective pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A former Greenville narcotics detective pleaded guilty to three felony charges in Pitt County Superior Court Thursday morning.

Rose Edmonds struck a deal with the N.C. Attorney General’s Office and pleaded to three felony counts of altering, destroying or stealing evidence.

Pitt County District Attorney Kimberly Robb said Judge Marvin K. Blount sentenced Edmonds to six to 17 months for each of the counts, to be served consecutively. But then Blount suspended the sentence and put Edmonds on probation for the same amount of time. If she violates the terms of her probation, Blount told her he will activate the sentence, according to Robb.

Edmonds will be under house arrest for three months and must do 120 hours of community service, Robb said.

Edmonds lost her job with the police department back in February when the SBI began investigating her for stealing thousands of dollars in drug money seized during investigations she helped conduct.
