Newest Greene Co K9 alerts lead to drug arrest

GREENE COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – One Eastern Carolina sheriff is singing the praises of a four-legged deputy in the force’s latest drug arrest.

Around 1:30 Monday morning, deputies pulled over Stefan Blixt, 35, in Snow Hill.

A K9, Sasha, alerted deputies to methamphetamines in the vehicle.

Blixt was charged with Possession of Schedule II and No Operator’s License.

This isn’t the first time K9 Sasha helped the Greene County Sheriff’s Office in drug busts. She has recovered various drugs including meth, mollie, and marijuana, seized three vehicles, four firearms, and over $18,000 since the beginning of December.

She’s also been a part of 20 different drug paraphernalia charges and tracked one suspect.
