Durham police initiated a series of crackdowns over the course of the week of September 17, according to local sources. Apparently, 41 people were arrested and charged with a felony related to alleged drug or prostitution crimes. Operation Bull City Intercept, as it was termed, focused on alleged drug trafficking routes and was carried out by several North Carolina law enforcement agencies.
Details of the individual arrests were not elaborated upon by authorities in this report, but it has been confirmed that several vehicles were stopped on local roads and searched. These vehicles were traversing several roads that police had been watching for some time as potential regular routes for individuals carrying and/or intending to sell illegal narcotics. It is unknown whether police had search warrants for each vehicle or if the searches were initiated on the spur of the moment.
