Deputies charge 10 in drug roundup




Sheriff’s deputies arrested 10 suspected drug dealers — including a Wilson County man — in a Nash County drug roundup Wednesday.

Deputies seized heroin, prescription painkillers and marijuana during the crackdown, said Lt. Dennis Wooten of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office narcotics division.

"We are continuing to see an increase in the abuse and distribution of prescription medications in our area,” Wooten said in a Friday statement. "Specifically, prescription painkillers are abundant in this area, and the availability of these controlled substances is also driving the demand and availability of heroin.”

Wooten said deputies expect to make more arrests as the investigation continues.

"We will continue to target, arrest and assist in the prosecution of those offenders who continue to make these prescription medications and heroin available in our area,” he said.

Linwood Earl Pilkington, 64, of 4925 Yank Road south of Wilson, was arrested on eight counts of trafficking opium or heroin and one count of conspiracy to traffic opium or heroin. He was booked into the Nash County Jail in Nashville under a $200,000 secured bond.
