Earlier this month, Detectives with the Wayne County Drug Unit were conducting an investigation of Kenyatta Applewhite for the illegal sales of narcotics in the Goldsboro/Wayne County area. During the course of the investigation detectives observed a drug transaction taken place at 902 Pineview Ave. As detectives approached the residence, Applewhite fled the area on foot. During a search for Applewhite, approximately three ounces of marijuana was located. Warrants were secured on Applewhite and he was arrested. He was given a $5,000 dollar secured bond and placed in the Wayne County Jail.
