ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) – A traffic stop helped police make two drug arrests in Elizabethtown Friday.

Police said an officer pulled over a car for a registration violation near Broad Street and Airport Road around 10 p.m.

During the stop, the officer noticed evidence inside of the car of narcotics use. As they searched the car, officers said they found a crack pipe, syringes, razor blades, digital scales, an empty pill container, and several clear plastic baggies.

Sadly, this couple is in the right place to sell their crack cocaine and heroin. Elizabethtown, county seat of Bladen County, one of the poorest counties in the state, has a complacent attitude toward poverty. Elizabethtown’s leadership will not allow any businesses to come in that would “compete with the town’s own established family businesses.”

Bladen County is a wretched backwater, and half the population feels a sense of hopelessness about their futures. The county is doing nothing to recruit industry and business.

The poor get poorer, and the rich–yes, there are a few rich people in Bladen–get richer and more callous.

Young people from poor families, with few skills and no opportunities, turn to drugs to make their lives tolerable.

Bladen County is truly a miserable place to live, and its leadership seems determined to make sure Bladen’s poor citizens continue to experience nothing but misery and hopelessness.

Poor little E-Town. Maybe if the two officers there focused less on speed traps and more on real police work, it wouldn’t be in the news all the time.. We once got pulled because a seat belted passenger had his foot propped up in the window, (inside the car) and were puled for “posing a serious risk and immediate threat to the public”..

Is that anything like the public health risk caused by menthol cigarettes?

Fire the DA's

Decidealot and Paul… both have hit the nail on the head. why the EPD is so focused on traffic enforcement on a 3/4 mile stretch on NC 87 that is on the outside edge of town is beyond me. Wanna be troopers is my only guess! I have been through license checks there at the city limit and ask the officers” don’t you all have anything better to do all 2 or 3 of you are out here and the town is vulnerable.

The biggest excitement here now is that Taco Bell maybe coming to town. the town board may not run them off since they planning on building on one of the wealthy and powerful land ownwers property. I heard someone say “now,if we could just get a Super Walmart”. Maybe……..if they can figure out how to build one in the downtown area or on one of the council members property or where it will benefit the right people. Walmart is not interested inside the city limits, they want to be where other anchor stores will be. Great place???? 87 Bypass area, BUT that’s not going to happen because of the zoning the town has imposed.
