The Sheriff’s Office has been initiating roundups a couple of times a year since Sheriff David Carpenter took office in December 2010. The number of suspects in some of the operations has made county history as narcotics investigators consistently pursue undercover work with the chief goal of removing street-level dealers from the community.

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.
