BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff's deputies seized 2,000 bindles of heroin at a traffic stop yesterday.
An investigation led deputies to Christopher Joseph Mosby of Leland. They say Mosby's goddaughter was driving him home, when deputies found the duffel bag of drugs.
A narcotics officer, who's identity we are protecting, says because of the amount of heroin seized, the bust is huge for Brunswick County.
"Based on the fact that this guy was convicted of murder in 1994, and he's out in 2012, and he's obviously a major supplier of narcotics in our county," the officer said.
Detectives say Mosby brought the duffel bag with the heroin on a bus from New Jersey.
He is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking opium or heroin.
