WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A drug arrest last week turned out to be the largest heroin bust in New Hanover County history. They say it was enough to produce more than 15,000 bags of heroin.

“Each one of these bags represents a life that was saved by not allowing this poison to hit the streets of New Hanover County,” Sheriff Ed McMahon said.

Wednesday detectives wrapped up a month-long investigation of Tierre Henderson that netted more than 300 bags of heroin worth about $9,000, large amounts of packaging material and paraphernalia. Detectives arrested Henderson and charged him with multiple counts of trafficking opium.

A search warrant at his home at 7310 Konlack Ct. led detectives to find large quantities of packaging material, including glassine bags, digital scales, stamps and ink pads. The bags of heroin were stamped with “Breaking Dawn” and “Dream Catcher.”

Detectives continued their investigation of Henderson, which led them to Chrissy Joy Sinclair and a home in Holly Ridge. With help from Holly Ridge Police, a search of the home found 5.5 ounces of pure, uncut heroin along with $60,000 in cash.

Both Henderson and Sinclair are in the New Hanover County Detention Facility.

Henderson has a history of drug convictions dating back more than a decade. Sinclair also has been convicted on drug offenses.

Let’s get one thing straight. I was pretty close to Chrissy and she could have cared less about the drugs. It was the money and greed. Never the less she is a loving and caring mother, if she couldv’e just left Tierre’s a** alone she wouldv’e been ok. No matter what happens me and my family will be praying for their kids, families, and them. Hopefully this is a wake up call to her. I think about the kids everyday, but i know they are in good hands. The whole situation just sucks.

She made her own bed. I feel sorry for the kids, but she deserves whatever she’s gonna get, and then some.

It makes no difference if she did it for the money or for the drugs, she still placed her kids in a dangerous, life threatening situation. If she really loved those kids, she never would have even thought of doing such a thing. Now they’re going to have to grow up without a mother. Love…yeah, right.

Touché. But it’s rarely the sellers that start the addicts. It’s their dumbass friends who talk them into it.

This filth which some call people are not going to get ANY sympathy from me! My wife has two nephews that are recovering heroin addicts, and a dead sister because of “Good people like this that just made a mistake”. You supporters can spew your thoughts all you want but it’ll never make me stop loathing scum like this.

Good job Sheriff McMahon.

You come here and post a sympathy note for two heroin dealers that had enough heroin to kill 1000 people and expect a different opinion? Sorry, you opened yourself up for this kind of response. I’ll pass on the a&& kissing offer, i’m sure you two can keep each other rather comfy. Bu bye.
