BURLINGTON, N.C. — Police have arrested six people in connection with drug violations following the search of a Burlington duplex Friday morning.

According to police, a search warrant was executed at a duplex in the 2200 block of Morningside Drive at approximately 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The search warrants were related to an investigation into alleged drug activity at both residences in the duplex involving two brothers.

A search of one residence yielded approximately 148 grams of marijuana, one gram of cocaine, five dosage units of clonzapam, three dosage units of hydrocodone, a set of digital scales, a military style ballistic vest and $469.

    I wonder how much time and money this investigation took from law enforcement personnel that could have been better spent on crimes with actual victims.

        Please tell me who was harmed besides the taxpayers, who lost a lot of police money that could have been better used against crimes with actual victims. You might want to water down that drink a little bit.

      It’s not like they were just sitting around getting stoned.
      If the haven’t had a victim in the past few weeks, they were sure to have a victim in the future.
      Think about the crimes they probably already committed with victims that they didn’t get busted for.

      You think that gun was for protection? Most likely not.
      Oh.. Also. The money used on this is gonna be used no matter what. And I’m positive that they weren’t spending time on this istead of other crimes.

    Wow a whole 2 ounces of weed and 10 pills and digital scales. Way to waste taxpayers money on that HUGE drug seizure!! Great job guys!

    We gotta stop locking up these petty drug dealer’s. Go after the big fish,tax payer’s are sick of spending tons of money to get a little drugs off the street. 1 gram of cocaine,they could’ve found that on dollar bills @ Walmart.

    These guys were told on by someone who has something against them. Come on, 6:30 on a Friday morning…? lol. They are wrong for doing and being involved. I feel bad for them. I know 4 out of the 6 too but they have to make better choices about what they do recreationally and financially. Police are going to uphold the law and they were doing their job. I do agree that they need to investigate where the drugs are actually coming from. They (the 6 guys) are not the kingpins, they are small time who do this just to get by. We do just get the ants that trickle down the sidewalk, we actually look for the ant pile and get rid of it…same thing should happen with drug enforcement. None of them should have had a gun, but that lets you know there’s a bigger problem they are worrying about. Same people going to jail, just recycling.

    Meanwhile, the same activity happens on the other side of town and nobody does a thing! We need to investigate the people who do the investigating.
