Pitcher full of fentanyl found after domestic violence call leads to massive ENC drug bust

A domestic violence call in Jacksonville led to the discovery of a large amount of drugs, including an amount of fentanyl that, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, could have the potential to kill 1-million people.

While investigating the domestic violence complaint on September 29, Onslow County Sheriff’s Office deputies could smell marijuana and also saw pot sitting in plain sight.

The drug enforcement unit was notified, and a search of the home found 2.5 kilos of Fentanyl, over 40 pounds of marijuana, two rifles and three handguns -- one of which was stolen in Pender County – and about $10,000 in cash.

Daquan Wainwright, 25, and London Kebe, 18, were arrested and face a list of drug and gun charges. Wainright’s bond was set at $1.7 million and Kebe’s at $258,000.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
