ALE Arrests Eight During Raids in Winston Salem


RALEIGH – Special agents with North Carolina’s Alcohol Law Enforcement executed three search warrants and arrested eight people in Winston Salem Feb. 22 at locations known to be distributing alcoholic beverages without proper permits and illegal drugs.

Working undercover, ALE agents purchased alcoholic beverages at establishments that do not hold Alcoholic Beverage Control permits and also had illegal drugs. The Winston Salem Police Department, State Bureau of Investigation and ALE worked jointly on the operation and seized the illegal alcoholic beverages, drugs and U.S. currency.

The addresses of the locations searched are 2848 Piedmont Circle, 1043 East 17th Street and 1116 East 17th Street, all in Winston-Salem.

The investigation was conducted as part of ALE’s Community Betterment Initiative which identifies communities in North Carolina where the quality of life for the citizens is disrupted by these illegal establishments which cause drugs, gangs and violence in their neighborhoods.

“We continue to stay committed to working with our local, state and federal law enforcement partners to address the needs of neighborhoods and communities with proactive, efficient enforcement strategies that rid the communities of crimes and violence,” said ALE Special Agent in Charge Rodney Beckom. “We hope the cooperative law enforcement efforts seen today ensure these communities are afforded an improved quality of life.  These searches were a direct result of complaints from the citizens of Winston Salem.”
