WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Two people were arrested in a Winston-Salem drug bust on Dec. 11.

Donnell Pope, 41, and Tabatha Colee Green, 33, both of 1538 N. Cleveland Ave., were arrested after the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Special Investigations Division concluded that illegal drugs were being distributed from their home.

While conducting a search of the home, officers found powder cocaine, MDMA or “Molly,” marijuana, counterfeit “crack” cocaine, $490, 25 rounds of .40 caliber ammunition and four electronic tablets. The total value of the seizure is estimated to be $4,477.

Officers discovered that Pope had absconded from probation in Mecklenburg County in 2010 and was living in Winston-Salem under an assumed name. He is being held without bond because of the probation violation.

Both Pope and Green are facing drug-related charges.
