Local

BEAUFORT COUNTY, N.C. (WNCT) Throughout the past two months of sheltering due to the coronavirus pandemic, Sheriff Coleman ordered the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Drug Unit to continue investigating complaints of drug activity in Beaufort County.

Despite statewide stay-at-home orders and other recommendations discouraging travel, Davenport says those restrictions have been largely ignored by those engaged in the drug trade.

According to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s website, investigators have arrested or obtained warrants on the following 27 people so far during the pandemic:
