GREENSBORO, N.C. — More than a dozen people were arrested on 172 charges in Greensboro after a string of raids by state and local law enforcement, according to police.

Alcohol Law Enforcement, Greensboro police, the State Bureau of Investigation and the North Carolina National Guard spent months investigating illegal alcohol sales.

Over 48 hours, law enforcement conducted a number of raids arresting 18 people and seizing “large amounts” of marijuana, two handguns, a rifle with a 100-round magazine and more than 70 grams of fentanyl.

Police say 130 of the 172 charges were felony drug and weapons-related charges, and more arrests are expected.
