As part of their continued narcotics investigative efforts, the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office recently arrested 13 suspects. The arrests were part of an ongoing investigation into individuals police say were directly involved in the sale of or facilitating the sale of narcotics to an undercover investigator.

The suspects were arrested for numerous felony drug crimes, and authorities say most of them have an extensive criminal history. This is why this is an ongoing operation that will target and arrest repeat and career criminals, especially suspected drug dealers.

All of the suspects face felony charges. Ten of those arrested are Statesville residents, two are from Mooresville and one is from Troutman. Following their arrests the suspects received bonds from $2,500 all the way up to $160,000. The investigation is continuing.
