Partnerships help make our communities safer

The Granville County Sheriff’s Office Special Operations Division recently combined forces with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the Apex Police Department and the NC State Bureau of Investigation in a joint investigation that took 208 grams of cocaine, with an estimated value of $20,800, off the streets to make our communities safer.


“We would like to thank the Franklin County Sheriffs Office and other agencies involved in this operation,” said Granville County Sheriff Charles R. Noblin, Jr. “We are grateful to have this cooperation between agencies to take drugs off our streets.”


Franklin County Sheriff Kent Winstead agrees. “We are grateful that our partnerships with other local and state agencies continues to be productive,” he said of the investigation. “Even though this type of drug activity occurs across jurisdictional boundaries, it poses the same threat to all of our citizens. This arrest and the removal of this amount of illegal drugs has made all of our communities safer.”
