Undercover Cops Nab Couple Selling Drugs to Agents in Rayleigh; Massive Stash Discovered and Seized in North Carolina

A significant quantity of narcotics has been seized in a recent drug bust in Raleigh, removing them from circulation.

“It’s a relief to see the police taking action and removing them from the streets,” expressed Larry Miller, President of the Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative.

Following reports of illicit activities in the Glenwood South area, the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement initiated an inquiry into the actions of Nicholas Banister and his spouse, Amanda.

The agency reports that the couple was involved in the sale of various drugs to undercover agents. Agents discovered a significant stash of them during a subsequent search of their residence.

The agents discovered and subsequently seized the following items:

  • 884 grams of cocaine
  • 540 grams of ketamine
  • 325 grams of MDMA
  • 16 pounds of marijuana
  • 13.6 ounces of psilocybin mushrooms
  • 3,383 methamphetamine pills
  • 9,283 Xanax pills
  • 216 dosage units of LSD

However, according to Burrows, the 884 grams of cocaine had the potential to be used for thousands of doses.

“There’s so many variables involved. The purity of the drug is one of the most important things, you don’t know how much is in there of the actual active substance,” said local forensic toxicologist Dr. David Burrows.

Miller commends the ongoing presence of officers in the area after this investigation.

“We’re happy that they’re getting them off the streets, that’s why the police are here,” said Larry Miller, President of the Glenwood South Neighborhood Collaborative.

The Raleigh Police’s Hospitality Unit has been diligently seizing drugs and firearms in and around Glenwood South.
