Local and federal law enforcement officers arrested 61 people in Greenville last week during “Operation Janus,” a three-day initiative focusing on offenders with outstanding warrants and gang and drug violations.

Beginning in the early morning hours of Jan. 3, approximately 40 law enforcement officers converged on the streets of Greenville in search of individuals wanted on outstanding warrants.

Officers and investigators from the Greenville Police Department, United States Marshals Service, North Carolina SBI, Pitt County Sheriff’s Office, N.C. Department of Public Safety, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms combined their resources in the enforcement operation, according to Kristen Hunter, public information officer for the Greenville Police Department.

The operation concluded on  Jan. 5, and resulted in 61 arrests and the seizure of five guns, heroin valued at $81,660, cocaine valued at $12,584, marijuana valued at $1,950 and U.S. currency totaling $8,100. In all the officers served more than 400 warrants.

“Operations such as this one are vital in maintaining the safety of our neighborhoods. I would like to thank all of our local, state, and federal partners for helping make this operation a success. Your efforts have helped make a safer start to the year possible,” said Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman in a statement.

This operation represents the Violent Crime Reduction Unit’s overarching enforcement strategy, which aims to join anti-violence, anti-gang and narcotic resources from federal, state, and local partners, and utilize each agency’s expertise to remove these criminals and their weapons, drugs, and cash from our communities. The initiative is not over, however; as all violators were not apprehended and additional arrests are likely.

Eighty people were on the list of warrants, so officials are still looking for 19 other people.

Most of the charges that were filed were for sale of marijuana, sale of cocaine, sale of heroin, selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a park and selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a school.
