Caswell County Deputies arrest twelve in drug sting.
On Friday, 9/23/05, another group of drug dealers went down in North Carolina. Deputies filed 38 charges against the twelve, with the most common being possession with intent to sell and deliver drugs. Sheriff Michael Welch said most arrests were made around Hwy N.C. 87 in the southwest corner of the county near the Alamance County line.
The Caswell County sheriff's Department received a grant in July from the Governors Crime commission for heightened drug enforcement. Other agencies assisted in the round-up of these dealers.
Some of those charged in the operation are as follows:
Marcus J. Sellers, who drew the the heaviest charges, for possession and intent to sell marijuana, cocaine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a weapon of mass destruction.
James C. Lipscomb: selling or delivering for sale, cocaine and possession.
Ricky Allen Oakley: same charges as Mr. Lipscomb.
Billy M. Nance: same charges as Mr. Lipscomb and Mr. Oakley.
William S. Mitchell: same charges as Mr. Lipscomb, Oakley and Nance.
And Mr. Jonathan M. Hicks who was charged with second-degree burglary and a probation violation.
A complete list was not available on Friday afternoon. The men are accused of selling marijuana, crack cocaine and prescription drugs.
Look out dealers. The Organization is coming for you next as North Carolina looks to put their S.T.E.P'D on you.
