On July 12th, officers with the Goldsboro Police Department’s Selective Enforcement Unit and Gang Suppression Unit arrested 34-year-old Nicole M. Pendleton of Goldsboro, and charged her with Possession of Heroin.
On Thursday, July 16th, the SEU and GSU officers arrested 32-year-old Joshua L. Holmes of Mount Olive, and charged him with Possession of Heroin, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of Marijuana.
These arrests resulted from the SEU and GSU’s concentrated efforts on activities in and around Goldsboro area hotels and motels. Attention to these areas are primarily done as a proactive approach to identify and curb illegal activity taking place at some area establishments. Nationally, hotels and motels historically attract transient individuals involved in illicit selling of controlled substances, prostitution and/or human trafficking.
The Department plans to continue such investigations, and work in corporation with local hotel/motel management and staff to address any concerns they may have at their specific establishments.
