LINCOLNTON, N.C. -- Law enforcement officials deployed throughout the county over the last week looking for 60 suspects involved in illegal drug activities.
The 60 offenders targeted in the round-up are facing a total of 206 felony drug charges. The suspects are street level and large scale traffickers and less than 25-percent are repeat offenders, law enforcement officials said.
They range in age from 15 to 67-years old, according to authorities.
“We utilize every possible resource available to seek out and apprehend the scum that continue to plague our neighborhoods with the sale and delivery of illegal drugs. It is my goal, as Sheriff, to continue these efforts and hopefully send more of them to prison for longer periods of time. Words can’t really express how proud I am of the professional work of the officers that work for our office and what they continue to accomplish each day," said Lincoln County Sheriff David M. Carpenter.
