BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Three people are in jail after local, state and federal agents busted a cocaine operation in Brunswick County.
The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Vice-Narcotics Unit, along with the State Bureau of Investigations and the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms worked together on the bust, that led them to find 330 grams of cocaine Thursday.
Kemine Taylor, 23, of Hale Swamp Rd., Shallotte, and Joshua Orlando Bernard, 24, of Beach Dr., Ocean Isle Beach, are each charged with 12 counts of trafficking in cocaine, two counts of sell/deliver cocaine and one count of conspire to traffic in cocaine. They are both in the Brunswick County Detention Facility under $1 million secured bonds.
Amy Michelle Slusser, 27, of Beach Dr., Ocean Isle Beach, is charged with one count of possession of drug paraphernalia and three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, because investigators say her children were in the home where officers found the drugs.
