    I bet Rush Limbaugh will be disappointed to hear this.

    Model citizens (by Rocky Mount standards). But they entered a lower degree of difficulty by throwing in the "Nash County" factor.

    Judging from the time frames it appears as though Erin Lynn may have rolled over on her partners in crime. She's been in jail for seven months and this investigation lasted for seven months.

    just my 2cents - Two of the people arrested shared the same residence and last names. it does not appear the others were directly related. Had they all been immediate family members...whoah boy!

    kbo80 - Mugshots and Glamorshots are two completely different things, lol! There are some drugs that do seem to age people prematurely, no doubt about it.

    Normal looking family to me....NOT.
