BLADENBORO — A two-month undercover investigation resulted in the arrest of two Bladen County residents, each of whom are behind bars on drug charges.
According to Bladen County Sheriff Jim McVicker, the arrests were made on Wednesday.
“… deputies from this office, assisted by members of the Elizabethtown Police Department, executed a search warrant that lead to two arrests and the confiscation of methamphetamine and precursors for the manufacture of meth, “said McVicker.
McVicker said officers served a search warrant Wednesday morning at a residence on Julis Drive in Bladenboro. Arrested were Josh Hurst, 29, and Amber Brisson, 26, and each have been charged with manufacture methamphetamine, possession with intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine, and maintaining a dwelling for the sale of controlled substances.
Hurst and Brisson are in the Bladen County Jail under a $10,000 secured bond each.
“Many times folks do not think we are doing anything to combat drugs but when we start this type of investigation we know it may take several months to complete,” McVicker said. “There are others involved with the two we arrested today who are also making, using and selling methamphetamines in the Bladenboro area. We know who they are and we will be making additional arrests in the near future.”
