BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Supply man is in jail after deputies say they made the biggest heroin bust in Brunswick County's history.

Deputies say they found 8,000 bindles of heroin in a car Kevin Jermaine Hankins was driving. The drugs have a street value of about $160,000.

Hankins, 32, is charged with possession and trafficking heroin, eluding arrest and other crimes. Detectives say it's the end of a nearly year-long investigation.

Investigators say when they tried to pull Hankins over for a traffic violation around 2 a.m. on US 17 South at Waterford in Leland, he took off and led them on a chase. It ended when a deputy used a PIT maneuver to stop the car at US 17 North and Green Hill Road. The crash caused about $1,500 worth of damage to the patrol car.

Hankins is in the Brunswick County Jail under $760,000 bond.

The investigation continues, and the Sheriff's Office expects more arrests.

Really? What do you expect?

Ol' Kevin Hanky-peep here has already been CONVICTED of Felony 1st Degree Armed Robbery and Felony assault. He got "probation" for that.

Really? Probation for "1st Degree ARMED ROBBERY"? I've seen worse than that for traffic violations.

As I've stated many times here: "Thank you judges and DA's for doing such a wonderful job of protecting our society from repetitive criminals." Yet, they continue to roam among us...just like this worm.

What is it that they REALLY do? It has to be a pocket stuffing agenda, it definitely isn't a "crime related" one.

l0534 are you.

Adults should have the right to consume whatever they choose. If people could get cleaner legal drugs, then all the money wouldnt be going to the cartels and violent people. And we could spend more resources on keeping people who commit violent crimes with victims in jail. Instead of housing drug users that do not commit violent crimes, because they generate more revenue for police departments and private owned prisons.

Don't say nothing if you don't know the whole story, Y'all always quick to judge somebody, so keep his name out y'all mouth and learn to forgive and move on with y'all lives.
