Sheriff’s Officers Assist Probation Officers in Trafficking Arrest

Last Tuesday (November 16), Catawba County Narcotics Investigators assisted state Probations Officers with a search conducted at the residence of 21-year-old Robert Kent “Colt” Stamey III. Investigators found and seized 47.5 grams of pills with markings indicating they were Oxycodone. Investigators suspect the pills contain Fentanyl and were manufactured in a pill press to mimic prescription Oxycodone.

Stamey was arrested and charged with trafficking in a schedule II controlled substance. He was given a $10,000 secured bond with a first appearance in District Court scheduled last Wednesday (November 17) in Newton. Stamey’s next court date coming up on December 8.
