Twenty-two drug dealers were arrested after a massive round-up operation by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office.
All arrests stem from investigations done during the later portion of 2022 and 2023.
Deputies say all the suspects were directly involved in the sale/facilitation of narcotics to an undercover investigator.
The majority of the suspects have significant criminal histories, authorities said. Ten suspects were on probation at the time of their arrests; two were verified gang members.
“We want to thank the community for the continuous information which is provided about drug-related issues,” said Sheriff Campbell. “We hear you; we are investigating and are making arrests based on your information and tips.”
Authorities advise the public to use the ‘Iredell County Sheriff’s App’ to report drug crimes.
