Weed, other drugs, guns, cash seized from Roanoke Rapids ‘fall house’, police say

ROANOKE RAPIDS, NC (WNCN) — Roanoke Rapids police seized 10 pounds of marijuana, other drugs, cash and a gun from a “drop house” Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release.

The seizure was the result of an investigation that began in February when the police department was contacted about “known drug dealers in the apartment building” located at the 100 block of E. 4th Street, Roanoke Rapids, Police Chief Bobby Martin called.

Investigators monitored the home for several hours. They also got help from community officials and were able to identify the apartment as a “fall house” for storing drugs, money, guns and more, the press release said.

A search of the home revealed approximately 4 kilograms of marijuana in vacuum-sealed bags and jars, 73 grams of cocaine, 5.5 grams of crack cocaine, 2.38 grams of fentanyl, 10 grams of heroin, 10 alprazolam pills, a pistol with an extended magazine and more than $3,400 in cash, police said.

The Roanoke Rapids Police Department will refer the case to the United States Attorney’s Office in hopes of filing federal charges against those involved.

“This type of activity poses unnecessary risk to the citizens of the Roanoke Valley because of the violence that follows this type of activity and is not accepted in our community,” Martin wrote.

Police encourage anyone who sees suspicious activity to report it.
