Four suspects arrested for Multiple Felony Drug Charges.

Sheriff Darren E. Campbell stated:  On Tuesday November 14, 2017 at approximately 4:00 pm, members of the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Interstate Criminal Enforcement (ICE) Team and members of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office Highway Interdiction Team (HIT) were conducting criminal interdiction on Interstate I- 77 in Northern Iredell County as part of Operation Tarheel Gauntlet.

Iredell County Sheriff’s Office ICE Team deputies noticed individuals exchanging packages between four vehicles at a business just off of the interstate. When the subjects noticed the uniformed deputy, they quickly exited the business at a high rate of speed. Two vehicles went I-77 North and two went I-77 South.
