Man held after raid turns up drugs, guns

SoVaNow.com / September 09, 2013
A 42-year-old South Boston man was arrested Thursday and charged with five felony counts of distribution of cocaine.

Morris Marco Mitchell, a resident of Wildflower Drive, was arrested by Sheriff’s Deputy Seth Bowen after being indicted on the charges by the Halifax Regional Narcotic and Gang Task Force.

A search warrant was executed at Mitchell’s residence and police found 4.5 ounces of suspected cocaine, valued at $12,600. The raid also turned up approximately four ounces of suspected marijuana, valued at $1,120.

Also seized in the search were three vehicles — two motorcycles and a four wheeler — and nine firearms.

In addition to Task Force members, members of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office, the South Boston Police Department, and Virginia State Police were involved in the arrest.

It is sad how the media make things look so bad. African Americans can never have a fair chance in this distraught world. Society has made it so hard for the average person to make a good living and when they make a bad decision it is turn into some horrible.

I assume by your post the person arrested is an African American. If so you are the one that made that public not the media.

So when does Nobin gets sentenced...which is worst a low level drug dealer or a man hired to arrest them then stealing money and lying about it

That African American did it to himself. I doubt anyone forced him to do what he did. He deserves what is coming to him. Life is hard for all of us. I am white and I don't find anything easy. Work two jobs, barely get by. And what Noblin did is worse.

Comments

Wow Tammy J, we the public didnt know he was African American. He chose this lifestyle which is criminal therefore he subjected himself to the consequences. His race has nothing to do with it.
