Series of drug overdoses lead to heroin trafficking arrest in Mebane

A man from Mebane has been arrested for heroin trafficking after a rash of overdose cases prompted a multiagency investigation into the source of the potentially lethal narcotic.

During the course of this inquiry, the office of Alamance County’s sheriff and Mebane’s municipal police force reportedly gathered enough evidence to obtain a search warrant for the home of Terrell Devaunquae Layron Goode at 703-C North Summit Ridge Road.

According to the sheriff’s office, the two agencies ultimately discovered 22.43 grams of heroin when they raided Goode’s residence last Wednesday, along with $10,000 in cash and a couple of firearms. In the meantime, officers took the 29-year-old black male into custody for a variety of criminal offenses.

Goode currently faces criminal charges for heroin trafficking, heroin possession with the intent to sell or deliver the drug, and maintaining a dwelling for the sale or distribution of a controlled substance. Goode is also accused of paraphernalia possession as well as the illegal possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon. He has been jailed under an $85,000 bond since his arrest.
