— A 24-year-old Fayetteville man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after Greenville police found 450 bags of heroin in a car he was driving. 

Kevin Khaaliq Beamon faces two counts of trafficking heroin and one count each of possession with intent to sell and distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a vehicle for the sale of drugs. 

Police arrested Beamon around 1:30 p.m. after investigating a suspicious rental car parked near the intersection of Myrtle Street and West 14th Street in Greenville. 

Beamon was in the Pitt County jail Wednesday under a $300,000 secured bond. 

Police said the investigation of the car is ongoing and said more arrests are possible.

    STYMIE how can you determine someones thinking when you cant even think at all? "TAXED" drugs to kids? LOL If its taxed, its CONTROLLED, by the gov like all their prescription pills they force on us via the FDA. If your kid has a heroin problem I would look at YOU not a law book.

    If it was taxed like alcohol wouldnt you need ID to buy it? Drug dealers dont ID. Go take your kid for some "gov approved" drugs. Maybe Ritilin or Aderol. The gov says they are ok. Go for it!!! LOL poor people.

    I assure you with 450 bags he was just a runner...the big boss is still out there...and probably really mad right now. This kid is more scared of the dealer than he is of the time he is going to get.

  • so you dont like my opinion ok Apr 17, 12:40 p.m.

    Until the consequences are really bad, nothing much is going to change. I can't believe he only got $300,000 bail, he is ruining lives so are the people who buy ruining their own lives. What upsets me is the trial lawyers who know they are defending a guilty person. Guilty till proven innocent sucks in these cases, when it is blatently obvious and you know that the people have told their lawyer stuff...

    And they had probable cause to search because the car was a rental parked. Please get a great lawyer and yes drugs are illegal but I am tired of police lieing and breaking the law to get a name for themselves. Go by the books and you can keep them off the streets.

    Yawn who cares? theres always has been and always will be drugs and drug dealers, big whoop stop getting all excited. This guy should get half the amount of time that the lightest sentence for murder has ever been in our state. 1year??
