A Clayton mother who was a victim of violence in her apartment earlier this month now faces various drug charges. Authorities say that the 27-year-old woman was shot when a man came to her apartment door and asked to see someone. The woman told the visitor that the person he sought was not there and the visitor allegedly shot the woman as she closed the door.
In an operation called Bad Candy, law enforcement agencies in Brunswick County have been searching for individuals who allegedly violated the North Carolina Controlled Substance Act. Currently, the agencies are searching for more than 50 suspects for alleged drug crimes.
