WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Sheriff’s narcotics detectives seized more than 20 ounces of black tar heroin and more than 100 grams of methamphetamine. The drugs have a combined street value of more than $94,000.

Nancy Barrientos, 30, faces multiple felony drug charges.

“This is the largest amount of black tar heroin I’ve seen in my career as a narcotics investigator” Capt. David Ciamillo said in a news release. “Add the seizure of more than 100 grams of methamphetamine, and the result is a successful joint investigation that led to the arrest of a major drug trafficker and the seizure of an awful lot of dangerous narcotics.”

The investigation, which started back in August, was a joint effort between the Sheriff’s Office and Jacksonville Police.

    Who the hell cares where she worked? What does that have to do with anything? She’s still a human being regardless of what. People make mistakes. Half of these comments on here are ignorant as hell. It makes me sick. Lord forbid…one day it may be your sister, brother or child your reading about.

    yes these illegals come to this country to push their drugs and suck up welfare our taxes have paid into. Instead of recordings stating push one for spanish and every docuement we fill out now having spanish mixed all through it. the illegals all need to be rounded up and shipped back to Mexico!! so many of us are tired of hearing a rambling of spanish options every business phone call we try to make. this is America. we speak English!! learn to speak it before you sneak over the border. Destroy the youth in your own country with your drug dealings.

    Wow! Its pathetic how ignorant and uneducated people are! Y’all really do eat up every word the media throws at y’all.
    Stereotype people just by race as well. Yikes, that doesn’t speak well about a person’s character. Y’all want to comment about something you have no involvement in what so ever! & and yes it’s freedom of speech, but makes some people look, in laymen terms, Stupid!
    Whatever makes the news huh?! but damn reporters fail to investigate the matter any further! Only report what is convienent.
    You all are sorely mistaken. But then again only choose to believe what you see on TV.
    It’s beyond pathetic, how it’s obvious some of the people commenting on here know the individual but only seem to talk “s***” whiles she’s behind bars, rather then before. Poor character.
    As for the “race” comments, since I’m Hispanic, automatically I’m in a stereotype of being classified as a “mexican drug dealer”?! Rhetorical question. I guess people will never look beyond race, & see that some hispanics are educated w/ degrees! I’m sure some people commenting on here, weren’t valedictorians, hold a degree in business and accounting, & another one in allied health & make an honest living! I’m hispanic & proud to say I have achieved all that! I guess people will only see that stereotyped facade, rather then accomplishments & openly judge a person they do not know! Only GOD can judge, but obviously y’all feel divine & privileged to be doing it. Ignorance, what an awful trait instilled in some. No one stopped to question this story, since it’s on the news, she must be the person that is doing it?! In time, the truth will come out, but I’m sure the media will fail to report that. Keep on judging a woman you assume is dumping drugs into your city. Everyone knows what happens when one ASSumes.
    The sh*tty human beings are the ones so humbly showing such ignorance.
    God Bless.

    why does it bother you so when the person doesn’t look like you ????

  • Isidoro says:

    To the person that posted that generalized comment, please be advised not all Hispanics are Mexican or are in the drug business. Before you make such broad statement about cultures you clearly don’t know anything about, be sure to do your homework. I am a Hispanics male and very proud of my roots.
    Your comment is like saying all white males are wife beaters and drug dealers as well. But I know better!!

  • Guest2769 says:

    You are going to see a lot more now that Mexican drug cartels are embedding themselves in the local Hispanic communities. When you setup major grow operations in state parks you have little regard for the laws of a county who can’t stop you from walking in. We do greet them with Spanish speaking DHS so they can suck from our tax coffers and vote.

  • Guest0031 says:

    I do not care what race she is. The bottom line is she was pumping heroin into our city ruining Christ only knows how many lives and families. That not only makes her a sh*tty human being but a cancer to society. Throw the book at this piece of scum , hope you enjoy being Tuwanna’s personal box tender in prison Nancy.

    What bothers me is that they don’t live here legally…like I do. It bothers me that they don’t pay income and property taxes like I do. I bothers me that they enter our country illegally, suck up free healthcare at my expense, drain our social security system at my expense, farm babies at my expense AND bring poison to the children of our country at EVERYBODY’S expense!

  • tweety11 says:

    Is that all hispanics,some?Take a long look in the mirror.So you are saying if they paid taxes and what not it would be ok to sell drugs.Again i say why does it bother you so?

    The hate and prejudice in some of these postings are horrible. I can only surmise that this is yet another example of the good ole “southern hospitality” that they keep preaching about around here. It’s been going on for years. They have so much hate in their hearts, really it’s sad. It’s a lack of education, you see. It’s a fear of anything that they’re not used to and a fear of change. The hate they spew is all inclusive though, including (but not limited to) race, who people love, and even worse, (listen for it) folks from the north (GASP)! What’s sad is, the rest of the world knows it…

  • Guesttenheimer says:

    …that honestly work their tails off to honestly earn a living to barely be able to support their families. Those Americans are sick and tired of those that continue to break the law, steal tax money from our government, farm babies at Americas expense and are allowed to throw poisoning drugs into the hands of American children so they can make another buck!

    You can call it what you want, you can call names all you want, but America was founded on people coming here and becoming an American by the rules and being proud of that, not by being liars, cheats, thieves and drug dealers! That’s how Australia was founded and you don’t even find crap like this going on there these days!

    Take your Obamafied theory of people and bury it where your cat buries hers!

  • Thomas says:

    Holy crap. This lady for one is not illegal. Second she is not Mexican. And guess what. If this much money is involved I bet there might be a white person in there somewhere. And I’m darn sure there is an natural born citizen (as this lady is) also involved. A agree that illegals and the Mexican cartel is bad, but this doesn’t apply to this case. Stop showing your ignorance.

  • tweety11 says:

    You are special.Were did you and your friends get your drugs from?I know you never ever did drugs before and none of your friends.

  • Guest1948 says:

    I agree and it’s very frustrating having to “press 1 for English” each time I place a call. How about having to “press 1 for Spanish” instead and procede in English.

  • sgrandedog says:

    WOW, I know this woman. That’s my boys EX-girlfriend.

    For you to be so educated you sure have bad writing skills!! Stop thinking everyone is attacking Hispanics, because that is not the case. We are in AMERICA, so, if you choose to live here LEGALLY, learn the language and ways of the country. Stop expecting to come here and breed like rabbits so you can live free; stop wanting to be lazy and never learn the English language and putting it on your children to translate for you; and stop breaking the laws WILLING and KNOWINGLY and then act like you are being singled out because of your race. If you want to do the crime, be able to pull the time. If it had been a black person or white person that got busted, you people would be tearing them apart and ripping them to shreds. No sympathy at all for this person, regardless or race or anything else. If you want to try to bring that kind of crap anywhere and hurt people, kill people, destroy homes and families, and just diminish our society, you deserve to be punished!! As far as the comment about all Hispanics being drug dealers, sounds to me like you are the ignorant one that made that comment.
