GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A Greenville man and seven others, including a TSA officer, have been arrested on charges of operating a drug trafficking network in Charlotte and Greensboro.

Aaron Dixon, 40, of Greenville was arrested last week when the FBI raided a Greenville home Wednesday morning.

A criminal complaint stated the TSA officer, Jamie Blunder, 48, of Charlotte led the conspiracy and used a network of conspirators to distribute drugs such as cocaine and marijuana to and from Greenville.

According to the complaint, Blunder did not use the Charlotte Douglas Airport to traffic the drugs but may have used his TSA position to avoid detection while traveling back and forth from Jamestown, High Point and Greensboro.

Department of Justice officials said law enforcement executed multiple search warrants and recovered eight firearms, at least two kilograms of cocaine, more than $150,000 in cash and drug paraphernalia.
