Posted April 21, 2008

— Five people were arrested Friday after a raid on a home at 106 Smith Drive in Garner.

The Special Response Team of the Garner police and the Drug and Vice Unit of the Wake County Sheriff's Office worked together in the operation, which they said resulted in the seizure of 3.8 grams of crack cocaine and 5 grams of marijuana.

Officers charged Donnell Smith, 39, Lottie Smith, 58, and Clyde Gulley, 63, all residents of the property, with possession with intent to sell and delivery of a controlled substance.

Brandon Collins, 21, of 925 Weston St. in Raleigh, faces one count of simple possession of marijuana. Lolita Smith, 41, of 1328 Wrentree Circle in Raleigh, was charged with possession with intent to sell a counterfeit controlled substance.

    I think they just got caught with that small amount. If you lived in their neighborhood like I do, you would be thanking the cops for taking them to jail. Traffic in and out all day. And as for the the drunks Longshanks, cracked out junkies driving through to get their fix scares me just as much, especially with all the kids at the park next door.

    "they said resulted in the seizure of 3.8 grams of crack cocaine and 5 grams of marijuana."

    Sounds like personal use to me!

    And they will probably do more time than an illegal immigrant who drives on the wrong side of the road...drunk and permanently injures innocent people in the process. Go figure!

    Man, what a party!! 3.8 grams of crack and 5 grams of weed? Boy, they really knocked off a large chunk of the dealers in Garner. NOT. They could have eaten all of that before the cops knocked down the door. What a waste of taxpayer dollars. Aren't there some drunk illegals waiting to get arrested down there?

    I'm glad this riff raff got busted; If you're dumb enough to deal cocaine, you deserve to spend some time in prison. Doesn't matter to me if it's crack or powder cocaine either, it's all evil stuff.

    Poor use of the taxpayers dollar!!

    I did more drugs than that this weekend.

    5 grams of weed? That's hardly enough for a good size doobie! Good job, coppers. I can really sleep well at night knowing you gung-ho 'roiders are on the watch.
