i personally know this person & he is not a drug dealer, this is a smear campaign by brunswick county, the actual crime was with prescription medication & had nothing to do with illegal drugs or trafficking

and i know that he loves his family; and me. but if he did, he wouldnt have done this.
i could have sworn he wasnt doing drugs or anything to that effect.
but i guess i was wrong.
lets just hope there is an explination for all of this..
Outraged in Oak Island

The cops used a kid that they busted several times for growing pot in his house, having a weapon of mass destruction, possesion of several bags of heroin, and many other very serious crimes to basically entrap Tim into giving him the loritab pills (not heroin or opiates or any kind of trafficking as the charges suggest). I personally think it is in the publics best intrest if the informant were the one in court or even better in jail. But instead,Tim, a family man, and well liked established person in the Oak Island Community is facing trumped up, outlandish charges. The way the paper reads Tim's charges sound terrible saying that he was trafficking heroin or opiates and including a mug shot picture of him. I know Tim certaily didn't go out and about trying to sell pills that he has prescribed to him for various pain. Due to having to work on his feet in awkward standing positions all day he is likely in constant pain. Its pretty safe to say the sheriff's dept put the informant up to the harrassing job of calling Mr. Dobbs often, stopping by his place of business, and even showing up at his house. All the while attemting to gain Tim's empathy through made up stories of his own sever pain. So I am guessing after a while of this complaining and badgering the informant eventually asked Tim if he could have some of Tim's pain prescription. More than likely if money was exchanged it was forced on Mr Dobbs by the informant to help build the case against Tim. I have even heard that the informant stole pills from Mr. Dobbs while Tim was busy working and left money to incenuate a drug buy. It wouldn't be outlandish to think that the informant with the charges he is facing did anything and everything he could (legal or not) to get Tim into trouble to help himself. Tim is a hard worker who has no time or intrest in trying to involve himself in any illegal activity. He is a devoted husband, father, and all around nice guy. He is certainly not the drug dealer that that he is being made out to be in the Brunswick Beacon. So while Tim works hard, supports a family, and is forced to now deal with these allegations, a heroin addicted informant is working hard for our Sheriff Dept trying to work off his long list of serious crimes by coaxing, setting up, and entraping unsuspecting people. All of which is being wasted on our tax dollars. I think I would prefer my tax dollars being spent in geting this grimey informant incarcerated, rather than the DA wasting time and money charging a genuine good person like Tim. Unlile the person who set Tim up and is roaming around Oak Island care free, Tim actually learns a lesson if and when he makes a mistake.

obviously you are very uneducated, spend your time getting the facts, when someone is endicted, that just means that the case is being moved to superior court and that someone in that court house sits there and stamps endictments, no case was heard & no evidence was presented to have him indicted, have some balls & write your real name---PUSSY
