More than a dozen people, five of whom are out-of-county residents, remain at-large in connection with last month’s countywide drug round-up initiated by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies remain on the hunt for 14 of the more than 50 individuals indicted in “Operation Route 66,” the fourth and largest drug effort in county history.
The initiative, which commenced Oct. 24, targeted drug users and dealers in and around the community for possession of illegal substances including heroin, marijuana, cocaine and prescription pills, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies are looking for the following individuals:
Anyone with information on the individuals’ whereabouts is asked to contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at (704) 732-9050, the Drug Tip Line at (704) 736-8606 or Crime Stoppers at (704) 736-8909. Callers may remain anonymous, and any tip leading to an arrest may result in a reward of up to $1,000.
