Drug Tips Lead to Eleven Arrests Following Early Morning Multi-Agency Search Warrant Service GREENSBORO, NC (Jan. 17, 2018) – Residents’ concerns about possible drug activity spurred a six-month investigation that culminated in five law enforcement agencies executing search warrants early this morning at five houses along the Martin Luther King, Jr. corridor.

In mid-August of 2017, vice/narcotics detectives with the Greensboro Police Department were alerted by concerned citizens of possible drug activity on the 600-bock of Julian St. Early into the investigation, detectives established a link between a number of the properties.
