Two suspects in Harnett County’s largest single drug raid will not be able to bond out of jail before trial.
Raul Topete Arreola and Aquileo Perez Pineda told Judge Paul Holcombe they would be unable to pay the $3 million bond set following their Saturday arrest for methamphetamine trafficking.
Deputies arrested the pair following a months-long investigation conducted by the Harnett County and Wake County Sheriff’s Offices in conjunction with the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation.
Undercover investigators said they found more than 120 gallons of liquid methamphetamine stored in the driver’s side fuel tank of Arreola’s 2009 Peterbuilt semi-truck.
Neighbors said they saw several deputies circle a home on Will Lucas Road in Linden on Saturday morning.
“It’s the biggest (seizure). I’m on my 24th year, and this is the biggest one that I’ve ever been involved with. I’m sure it’s one of the biggest ones (in Harnett), maybe one of the biggest ever in the state,” Sheriff Wayne Coats said.
