FROM STAFF REPORTS
Three suspects faces felony drug charges after Iredell County Sheriff’s Office personnel executed a search warrant at home off Brown Summit Avenue and seized crystal methamphetamine.
Sheriff Darren Campbell announced the arrests of Katherine Elizabeth Janvrin, 30, Brandy Marie Jones, 41, and Kevin Michael Duckworth, 32, in a news release Tuesday morning.
Deputies assigned to the ICSO Warrant Squar executed a narcotics search warrant at 1202 Brown Summit Avenue on Friday, Campbell said.
The ICSO began investigating after narcotics investigators received information that Janvrin was distributing crystal methamphetamine from a residence in the Brown Summit and Goldsboro Avenue area of west Statesville, according to the news release.
Narcotics investigators established surveillance operations in the area and identified the suspect residence as 1202 Brown Summit, Campbell said.
Investigators then purchased crystal methamphetamine directly from Janvrin at the residence, according to the news release.
Based on the evidence gathered in this investigation, the search warrant was obtained. During the drug raid on Friday, investigators located seven individuals and a small baby.
The amount of crystal methamphetamine located inside the residence, along with numerous other items of evidence, were consistent with the sale and distribution of methamphetamine, Campbell said.
Due to the ages of the baby and others at the residence, the investigators contacted the Iredell County Department of Social Services to respond and assist with ensuring the safety of these individuals.
Janvrin, Jones and Duckworth were all arrested at the residence without incident and taken to the Iredell County Detention Center.
