Heroin, Guns and Cash seized after search warrant, Eight Arrested

Edgecombe County Sheriff Clee Atkinson announces the arrests of 8 documented gang
members charged with Heroin trafficking and firearm violations.

On 2/20/2018, the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office teamed up with the Nash County
Sheriff’s Office and the Rocky Mount Police Department to execute a search warrant at 813
Long Ave. in Rocky Mount. This joint operation, with the Tar River Regional Drug Task Force
was responsible for the seizure of 520 bags of Heroin, nearly $14,000 in cash, 3 handguns and
crack cocaine. One of the handguns recovered was stolen earlier this year from the Rocky
Mount area. Another of the firearms had the serial numbers removed.

The investigation revealed that the gang Sex Money Murder, a Blood gang set, was using
this residence as a distribution spot for Heroin and Cocaine sales in the area. Throughout the
investigation, investigators were able to positively identify several known gang members selling
from this house. The primary use of this house was to sell drugs.
Utilizing the Rocky Mount Police Department Special Response Team, investigators
were able to make a safe entry into the residence. Several of the gang members ran as
investigators approached the house. All of the subjects were caught within seconds.
