WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) — The Wilmington Police Department’s Narcotic Enforcement Unit has ended a month-long investigation into a cocaine and heroin distribution operation in the city. As a result, three men are in custody today on drug-related charges.

In recent weeks, WPD has received numerous complaints that the occupants of 1216 Castle Street were selling narcotics. Detectives executed a search warrant there last night (Thursday) at the residence of David Benjamin Alston, d.o.b. 8-31-1941.

Upon entering the house, detectives located Alston in his bedroom, packaging cocaine for sale. He was portioning approximately 5 grams of powder cocaine into smaller 0.5 gram baggies.

As detectives continued to search the house, they found 54 bags of heroin, a digital scale and other narcotics packaging material. They also encountered a second person (Williams Walker, Jr., d.o.b. 11-30-1955, of New York City) in possession of heroin that he had purchased from Alston.

Meanwhile, WPD’s SWAT team executed a related search warrant at 702 S. 13th Street, a house that had been linked to the investigation at 1216 Castle Street. During the search of the second house, officers seized a loaded firearm and subsequently charged Jeffrey Jerod Walker, d.o.b. 7-16-1960, of Wilmington with possession of a firearm by a felon.

Here are the charges that resulted from last night’s operation:

A guy from NYC with heroin, everybody knows that can’t be true. Once it’s tested you’ll find out it’s “baby powder”.

I know all these guys and this can’t be true. They had to have been set up.

Sure! They were set up. Give me a break – they are career criminals and they got caught. I wouldn’t want to meet any of them in a dark alley – they are scary looking!

They are all criminals that serve no purpose in society and the innocent taxpayers shouldn’t have to worry about running into them.
