NARCOTICS ARREST

On February 15, 2017, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Vice-Narcotics Unit completed an investigation into the distribution of marijuana in Columbus, Brunswick, and New Hanover Counties. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office initiated this investigation in January 2017 following a complaint from a concerned citizen.

The Vice/Narcotics Detectives from the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office determined that the below listed individuals were responsible for distributing high grade marijuana in Columbus, Brunswick, and New Hanover Counties. Columbus County Vice-Narcotics Unit made six (6) undercover purchases of marijuana from Beneway. Three transactions were completed in January and three transactions were completed in February. During the investigation, detectives learned that Beneway’s source, Whitham, was a former business owner in the construction industry. Due to Whitham’s business, he had a large network of contacts in various states including New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Colorado. This network of contacts in the Northern states enabled Whitham and Beneway to easily distribute marijuana from brokers in the Mid-West states to North Carolina. Beneway was the courier for their marijuana operation. The investigation also revealed that Whitham owned properties in both New Hanover and Brunswick counties. These properties were utilized to aid in the distribution of the high grade marijuana. After this discovery, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office requested the assistance of Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office and New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office to further the investigation.

On February 15th, the final undercover purchase was made from Beneway in New Hanover County, approximately a pound of marijuana. At this point, all three agencies converged to execute search warrants simultaneously at the three properties owned by the defendants. Brunswick County executed a search warrant at Whitham’s residence on Aaron Fullwood Drive, Southeast in Bolivia. Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office seized over $100,000 dollars in cash and approximately four (4) pounds of high-grade marijuana. New Hanover County executed a search warrant at Whithman’s property on Park Avenue in downtown Wilmington. New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office seized approximately $40,000 dollars in cash and approximately four (4) pounds of marijuana. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at Beneway’s residence on Loop Road in Bolton. Columbus County Sheriff’s Office seized a small amount of marijuana, a small amount of THC wax, and multiple documents that meticulously detailed their drug operation.

Whithman and Beneway were located at Whithman’s property in downtown Wilmington. They were both taken into custody and processed at New Hanover County Detention Center.

This continues to be an ongoing investigation.

Sheriff Hatcher wants to thank Sheriff Ingram and Sheriff McMahon for their assistance in this operation.

ARREST

Cerro Gordo, NC – On January 6th, Columbus County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Unit arrested Alvin Eulice Leggett, 47, of Williams Road in Clarendon. Leggett was taken into custody at G&G Healthcare located at 7490 Andrew Jackson Highway, Southwest, Cerro Gordo. The arrest was the result of an investigation following numerous complaints by women who were assaulted by Leggett.

On September 30, 2016, a thirty (30) year old, white female was traveling alone through Chadbourn. Leggett was driving behind the female and flashed his lights repeatedly in an attempt to stop the female. After the female driver stopped her vehicle, Leggett got out of his vehicle, approached the female driver, and informed her that her license plate had fallen off and he wanted to return same to her. The female driver exited her vehicle to examine her license plate and saw that her plate was still in place. She ran back to her vehicle. Leggett reached through her vehicle window, grabbed her shoulder and said inappropriate sexual comments to her. The female sped away.

On September 30, 2016, a twenty-one (21) year old, white female was traveling alone on NC 410/US 74. Leggett was driving behind the female and flashed his lights repeatedly in an attempt to stop the female. After the female driver stopped her vehicle, Leggett got out of his vehicle, approached the female driver, and opened her vehicle door. Leggett grabbed the female’s chest and said inappropriate sexual comments to her. The female sped away.

On December 14, 2016, an eighteen (18) year old, white female was traveling alone on NC 410/US 74. Leggett was driving behind the female and flashed his lights repeatedly in an attempt to stop the female. After the female driver stopped her vehicle, Leggett got out of his vehicle, approached the female driver, and informed her that her license plate was not secure. The female driver exited her vehicle to examine her license plate and saw there was nothing wrong with her plate. She hurried back to her vehicle. Leggett reached through her vehicle window and grabbed her chest. The female driver sped away.

On January 05, 2017, a twenty-one (21) year old, white female was traveling alone through Chadbourn. Leggett exited an unlit parking lot and began following the female driver. Leggett then flashed his lights repeatedly in an attempt to stop the female. After the female driver stopped her vehicle, Leggett got out of his vehicle, approached the female driver, and informed her that her tire was flat. The female driver remained in her vehicle despite Leggett insisting that she get out of the vehicle. Leggett reached through her vehicle window and grabbed her shoulder then aggressively grabbed her chest. Leggett also tried to reach the ignition to turn off her vehicle. The female driver sped away.

Leggett has been charged with four (4) counts of Sexual Battery and four (4) counts of Assault on a Female. Leggett was arrested and brought to the Columbus County Detention Center for processing. Leggett’s bond was set at $50,000.00 secured.

Columbus County Sheriff’s Office is seeking your help. Leggett targeted young white females who were driving alone. All of these incidents occurred after dark. We believe there may be other incidents involving Leggett that were not reported to law enforcement. If you experienced a similar incident as these women, please contact our office.

Sheriff Hatcher would like to remind citizens that it is important to protect yourself even while driving. Avoid stopping in dark, unpopulated areas. If you feel that something is wrong, only stop in well lit, well populated areas. Lock your doors anytime you are inside of a vehicle. Fuel your vehicle during the day to avoid unnecessary stops at night. Always let someone know where you are going. If you feel like you are being followed, don’t hesitate to call 911.
