North Carolina couple busted for trafficking drugs


WILLIAMSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A Jamesville couple are accused of distributing illegal drugs in Martin County.

Deputies arrested Sharon Jernigan Mizelle and David Earl Mizelle following a surveillance operation and traffic stop on Wednesday.

It happened on Thoroughfare Road near the intersection of Hollow Pond Road. A search conducted on the pair’s vehicle recovered 111 30 mg oxycodone pills and 120 oxycodone 10 mg pills. Their combined street value was about $3,400.

In addition to the prescription drugs, deputies also recovered $1,700 in cash and a 2005 Ford F-150.

The surveillance operation stemmed from complaints from concerned citizens about the Mizelle’s involvement in distributing illegal narcotics around the area. Wednesday’s arrest also followed Sharon Mizelle’s most recent arrest on June 4 when she was charged with Trafficking in Opium and Possession with the Intent to Manufacture, Sale or Deliver Schedule 4 Controlled Substances.

For Wednesday’s arrest, Sharon Mizelle was placed under a $300,000 secured bond. David Mizelle was placed under a $250,000 secured bond.
