Catawba County Residents Among 25 Charged In String Of Iredell Drug Arrests

Two Catawba County residents are among 25 suspects charged with drug offenses by the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office. The arrests were made between April and this month.

24-year-old Deltrich Lamone Lewis of West C Street in Newton is charged with three felony counts apiece of possession with intent to sell or deliver and sale and delivery of schedule II controlled substance and single felony counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver and sale and delivery of schedule I controlled substance. 42-year-old Christina Lynn Shook of Brown Chapel Road in Catawba is charged with two felony counts of sell or deliver schedule III controlled substance.

The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office made the arrests in an effort to target career, repeat offenders. The 25 individuals were arrested on numerous felony and misdemeanor drug warrants between April and July. The Sheriff’s Office says a majority of the suspects have significant criminal histories. Four of the individuals are currently on probation, and one is a registered sex offender. 17 of those arrested are Statesville residents, three are from Mooresville, and there are also single suspects from Mount Ulla, Troutman, and Concord.

The Sheriff’s Office says these suspects have either sold directly to or arranged sales of illegal drugs directly to an undercover narcotics investigator. Most of these arrests resulted from input from community members who provided authorities with the information required to begin narcotics investigations.

Bond for Lewis was set at $50,000 secured. His next District Court date is scheduled for August 8. Shook received a $5,000 secured bond, she’s scheduled to appear in District Court August 3. Neither suspect is listed as an inmate in Iredell County.
