On April 21, 42-year-old Andrew J. Brown, a well-known drug dealer in North Carolina, was shot to death in his driveway at the wheel of his vehicle by Pasquotank County deputies.
Brown was a drug dealer with a 180-page criminal record dating back to 1988. According to investigators, Brown was filmed selling narcotics weeks before his death.
Fox News reports – An initial search warrant signed off by North Carolina Superior Court Senior Resident Judge Jerry R. Tillett on April 20 states that Agent R.D. Johnson of the Dare County Narcotics Task Force was in communication with a confidential source who said they had been purchasing narcotics from Brown for over one year. The informant claimed that they had purchased different quantities of cocaine, “crack” cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine from Brown on numerous occasions.
Investigators believe the establishment at 421 Perry St. in Elizabeth City “is being used to store, package and distribute narcotics, namely ‘crack’ cocaine,” the warrant states.
