The Goldsboro/Wayne County Interagency Drug Task Force is searching for an alleged Florida-based drug trafficker whom they say has taken up residence in Wayne County.

Authorities so far have released only a name.

No photos or descriptions of the alleged trafficker have been made public.

Anthony Levert Saunders Jr., 26, 211 Blue Ridge Drive, is wanted for trafficking MDMA, also called "Molly," possession with intent to sell and deliver heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to a press release issued Monday, a search warrant executed recently at Saunders' home resulted in the seizure of more than 30 grams of Molly and an undisclosed amount of heroin.

Investigators have so far been unable to locate Saunders, however, and are continuing to search for him.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Saunders is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at 919-731-1480, or call Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255. Text tips to Crime Stoppers at 919-222-4230. Callers can remain anonymous and information leading to a felony arrest is eligible for a cash reward up to $1,000.
