BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WMBF) Agents in NC have seized more than $400,000 in methamphetamine in the largest methamphetamine bust in Brunswick County history.

Deputy Del Routh, spokesman for the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office, said agents with the BCSO as well as agents with the Wilmington offices of the U.S. DEA made the bust after a two month investigation tipped off by an anonymous tip.

Investigators executed searches at a home in the 2100 block of Exum Road in the Ash area between Jan, 16 and Jan. 18 and seized two kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, two firearms, a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer and a 2004 Honda Pilot.

Three people were arrested and charged in connection to the incident, Ruben Aquirre-Damian and Juan Agguirre-Mojica of Ash as well as Angel Hernandez of Marietta.

Routh said Aguirre-Damian was determined to be the cell head in southeastern NC for a bigger cocaine and methamphetamine drug ring based out of Georgia. Additionally, the methamphetamine seized by agents was found to have not been manufactured in NC.

Anyone with information in connection to the ongoing investigation is asked to contact the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office at 910-253-2777 or the Wilmington DEA office at 910-815-4513.
