Two Arrested in Statesville on Felony Drug Charges

32-year-old Devon Joseph Jacquet of Gay Street in Statesville and 25-year-old Melia Anthonia Luckey of Talley Street in Troutman were both arrested by Iredell County Sheriff’s Officers last Thursday (April 28) on felony drug charges. Jacquet was charged with two felony counts each of possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule I controlled substance and possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule II controlled substance, along with one felony count of possession with intent to sell or deliver a schedule VI controlled substance. Luckey was charged with felony possession of cocaine and she was served with three outstanding arrest warrants for failure to appear.

They were arrested after Narcotics Investigators Deputies executed a search warrant at Jacquet’s residence on Gay Street. The search warrant was issued after Investigators received information regarding individuals at the residence who were actively distributing controlled substances in the community. Undercover Investigators conducted surveillance operations to verify the information. Investigators made purchases of various narcotics from persons at the home.

When the search warrant was conducted, six subjects were found in the home. Officers found 20.2 grams of ecstasy, 14.9 grams of crack cocaine, 1.3 grams of methamphetamine, 104 grams of marijuana, four rifles, one handgun, a bulletproof vest, and an unspecified quantity of cash.
