Seat belt violation leads to drug bust

Goldsboro woman, 2 Virginia men facing charges


Failure to wear a seat belt clued cops into what led to a large drug bust early Friday morning.

A Goldsboro woman and two Virginia men were arrested when police found methamphetamine, marijuana, assorted pills, packaging materials and an AK-47 pistol with three fully loaded magazines in the car they were in, according to a release from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.

“On May 31, 2019 members of the Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Team were working the area of U.S. Highway 70 near the Wayne/Johnston county line,” the release stated. “Just after 1 a.m., ACE units conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for a seatbelt violation at the intersection of Highway 70 and N.C. Highway 581 North. During the stop, a probable cause search was conducted.”

The search revealed a cache of drugs and ammunition.

Gregory McKoy, 27, and 32-year-old James Gregory, both of Virginia, were charged with possession with intent to sell or deliver meth, possession with intent to sell or deliver marijuana, carrying a concealed firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia. McKoy was also charged with maintaining a vehicle to peddle drugs.

Both men were booked into the Wayne County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 secured bonds.

Jessica Agcaoili, 28, of Goldsboro, was charged with possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and was also arrested on three bench warrants for failing to appear in court. She was booked into the Detention Center in lieu of a $12,000 secured bond.
