Sheriff Darren Campbell stated: Several undercover drug investigations were concluded in the early morning hours of Tuesday, October 20th with multiple suspects being arrested by members of the Iredell County Narcotics Investigation Unit along with members of the Sheriff’s Office Warrant Squad.
The arrests ranged from Harmony through Statesville to the Troutman area of Iredell County with an additional arrest coming in Hiddenite in Alexander County. The warrants originated from numerous undercover purchases of illegal narcotics and prescription medication, along with surveillance operations which have been ongoing for several months by narcotics investigators.
Sheriff Campbell also stated “these types of investigations, and warrant services are exactly what my office is dedicated to, to arrest repeat offenders and drug dealers which diminish the quality of life for the citizens of this county”.
Several of these investigations were initiated from citizen complaints and information which was received from community members who had spoken with deputies about issues in their communities.
