STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Two Statesville residents are accused of selling crack cocaine to an undercover officer on several different occasions.

Officials say 20-year-old Corbin Brandon and 31-year-old Tameka Corry were selling crack cocaine out of a residence in Statesville. Iredell County Sheriff's Investigators made contact with Brandon and  Corry, and authorities say an undercover deputy made crack cocaine purchases from both suspects multiple times.

The investigation led deputies to obtain a search warrant for the home, which turned up a quantity of crack cocaine packaged for distribution and "Molly" capsules-- a designer drug that contains a pure form of the street drug ecstasy. The Sheriff's Office says the value of the drugs is more than $2,500.

Corbin is charged with two counts of sell/deliver cocaine, three counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, two counts of maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance and possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule I substance. He's held in the Iredell County Detention Center under a $25,000 bond.

Corry is charged with one county of sell/deliver cocaine, two counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, one count of possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule I substance and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance. Her bond was set at $3,500.
