Posted Updated

WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — Dozens of people face charges after a large drug raid in eastern Wake County Thursday.

After an 8-month investigation, Wake County sheriff's deputies confiscated cocaine, marijuana, weapons and scanners. Sixteen people were arrested.

The Sheriff's Office said it issued arrest warrants for 18 other suspects.

The charges included possession with intent to sell and distribute cocaine, sale and delivery of cocaine and maintaining a dwelling or vehicle for sale of controlled substances.

"This raid was another excellent example of interagency teamwork," Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said. " I'd like to thank the Zebulon Police Department, the Wake County ABC as well as the Wake County Interagency Task Force for their help in rounding up these suspects."
