KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A winter drug round-up in Lenoir County ended with 11 suspected drug dealers arrested, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Team and Community Crime Reduction Team worked together to build criminal cases against those arrested for the distribution of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.

Sheriff Ronnie Ingram released a statement Friday on the drug round-up saying, “Our efforts are focused on reducing crime in Lenoir County.  We know that drug use leads to other crimes, in particular breaking and entering and larcenies, where users have to steal to fund their habit.  These patterns make drug investigations a high priority in our office.  Based on numerous tips from the community, surveillance and investigative actions, our detectives have made these various arrests to try and rid our county of these dealers.”

More arrests and charges are expected.
