A collaborative effort by local, state and federal agencies took out a methamphetamine trafficking operation and resulted in the arrests of four Mexican nationals, police reported Monday.

Greenville police Chief Hassan Aden said 12 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, valued at more than $500,000, were seized late last month after multiple agencies acted on information about the trafficking and moved in on four people they allege were involved in the transportation of the narcotics.


Luis Esteban Macias Pena, 40, of Sinaloa, Mexico; Julio Cesar Medina, 35, of San Bernardino, Calif.; Jamie Lopez Contreras, 26, of Sinaloa, Mexico; and Abril Granados, 30, of Highland, Calif., all were arrested.

Congrats to Greenville Law Enforcement

Good job to all professionals involved. Meth is a no-win for the user and for society at large. It does some NASTY things to the human body, and even short term users never fully recover. It is sad that this sort of thing is going on near Verdant drive. Thirty years ago, it was a safe place for struggling blue-collar college kids to live while earning their degrees at Pitt CC and ECU. Today, it is a crime ridden place. I still can't figure out why the decline of this neighborhood happened.
