“The Narcotics and Gang Unit and the Down East Drug Task Force are dedicated to our mission of getting violent offenders and drug dealers off the streets of Bertie County,” Holley said in a statement. “Our goal is to be strategic, methodical and precise in our investigations of not only those who sell illegal dangerous drugs in Bertie County, but also of the distributors that may be in Northampton, Hertford and other areas.”
