    We could save the taxpayers a lot of money by turning these two clowns into chum. Visitors would appreciate the free fish bait.

    Nice work!! Thank you to the Sheriff’s Department and the task force!

    Wish our judges took any of this as seriously as our deputies. Instead they’ll delay their cases for years and years and eventually drop all charges and these dealers won’t pay a single consequence. Sickening.

    Great work by our local law enforcement. Getting these low life armed drug dealers incarcerated is a great service to our community. I hope they receive conviction w/ maximum penalty to send the message to the drug culture that we have zero tolerance for drug providers in Dare County. Cannot thank our law enforcement officers enough for their dedicated service to protect our community!
