North Carolina. This Squad consists of a Wayne County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant,
Sergeant and Deputy, a Goldsboro Police Department Lieutenant, Sergeant and two Officers,
and a Special Agent from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations.

Treasury Department. Efforts are also combined with the Air Support Division of the
Sheriff's Office. Their investigations have spanned from North Carolina to California. The
largest single seizure to date occurred during a recent investigation which originated in
Texas. This case resulted in the seizure of over $1.9 million in marijuana. Total weight
of this seizure exceeded 800 pounds. Currently, there are several investigations ongoing
that extend outside the North Carolina borders.
this Task Force was involved in over 225 major felony arrests and seized over $1.6 million
dollars in cash, drugs and property. As a result of these seizures, over $150,000 in cash
was returned to the agencies to aid in purchasing equipment, fuel for AirWatch 1, and
vehicles for the Task Force.
