He posted the following message on Facebook:
“Attention Union Chapel area near the school and store; the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office is aware of the drug dealing going on your area. The Drug Enforcement Division, SWAT and the Community Impact Team will be visiting soon. To the criminal element wreaking havoc and selling poison especially near a school, you have been warned. We are coming and you are not gonna like it. To the owners of the property that are allowing this to continue on your property, my office will be seeking Nuisance action in hopes of utilizing your property as a future Sheriff’s Office sub-station. #notfunandgameswhenwecome #drugsandkidsdontmix #bootsonthegroundcoming2u #citizensarefedup”
