BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Brunswick County deputies found 2,000 bindles of drugs inside a lunch box during a traffic stop in the county Thursday.
Christopher Joseph Mosby, 43, was arrested. Mosby is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and trafficking opium or heroin.
Chief Deputy Charlie Miller called Mosby a career criminal. He's from Springfield, New Jersey but was currently living in the Leland area. Deputies say Mosby was convicted of second degree murder in Forsyth County in 1994.
According to deputies, Mosby was the passenger in the car. His goddaughter, who is a juvenile, was driving the vehicle. Deputies say Mosby got the drugs here on a Greyhound bus from Springfield, New Jersey to Richmond, Virginia. The bus then went from Richmond through Raleigh and on to Fayetteville. Deputies say this was the result of a long time investigation and the case is still active in New Jersey.
Deputies also seized about $18,000 in cash when they confronted Mosby last week.
They say the bindles cost about $20 in Brunswick County and $10 in New Hanover County each.
