FROM STAFF REPORTS

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of daily life, but it has not impacted Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell’s resolve to hold drug dealers criminally responsible for their actions.

On Tuesday the sheriff announced the arrests of 11 individuals charged with drug offenses. Deputies are seeking six additional suspects wanted for drug crimes.

“Because of the current state of COVID-19 virus, we have to conduct business differently,” Campbell said. “We have worked these drug cases thoroughly and instead of having our usual high numbers of arrestees on one or two days, we have made adjustments to go after lower numbers for a longer time.

“By targeting these drug dealers who have actually participated in the sale of narcotics, we have been able to keep the crime rate low and made Iredell County not profitable and unfriendly place for drug dealers,” he added.
