WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office says its Vice/Narcotics Unit has made one of its biggest heroin busts ever.
After a six-month investigation, detectives say they found more than 14,000 bags of ready-to-sell heroin in two duffel bags.
Investigators say the suspects led them on a car chase that ended with the men ditching their car and running before they were taken into custody.
"Getting the drugs off the street is only half the battle, but also the arrest and apprehension of the dealers and being able to bring them to justice as well," NHSO spokesman Cpl. Jason Augst said.
Cousins Samuel Williams and Kevin Robinson are each charged with six counts of trafficking heroin among other charges. Both men are in jail under $3 million secured bond.
