36 arrested during drug searches in Montgomery County

RALEIGH (ALE/SBI) – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the Mount Gilead Police Department and the Troy Police Department joined resources with the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Branch to conduct an undercover operation in Montgomery County. This operation was the result of citizen complaints regarding illegal drug activity occurring throughout the county. Heroin, opium, cocaine, marijuana, and prescription medications were among the illegal substances that undercover agents purchased during the operation.

This cooperative effort also included the Biscoe Police Department, the Star Police Department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations, the U.S. Marshal Service, North Carolina Probation and Parole, North Carolina Division of Adult Corrections, North Carolina Adult Corrections and Juvenile Justice Canine Team, North Carolina Department of Revenue, and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.

As a result of this operation, North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement special agents, Montgomery County Sheriffs deputies, Troy Police Department and Mount Gilead Police Department officers arrested dozens of drug dealers and executed eight search warrants at locations known to be distributing drugs in Montgomery County.

This investigation was conducted as part of ALE’s Community Betterment Initiative which identifies communities in North Carolina where the quality of life for the citizens is disrupted by drugs, gangs, and violence in their neighborhoods. Agents worked closely with detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Troy Police Department and Mount Gilead Police Department during each phase of the operation.

“We are committed to addressing the needs of neighborhoods and communities with proactive, efficient enforcement strategies that make a difference,” said ALE Special Agent in Charge Mike Yates. “No one should ever fear walking outside of their own home.”

An additional phase of this operation included NC Probation and Parole officers who partnered with ALE special agents to conduct 30 checks on probationers that have a history of illegally using and selling controlled substances. An additional 6 individuals were arrested as a result of these checks.

Chief Probation and Parole Officer Carl Jones stated, “The success of this operation was the result of committed individuals working together to make a difference in this community. We appreciate the partnerships and know we made a difference in Montgomery County today.”

“Thanks to the teamwork and partnerships with other law enforcement agencies, drug dealers are now behind bars,” said Montgomery County Sheriff Chris Watkins. “We are aggressively addressing this criminal element and we will continue to be vigilant in eliminating any further illegal drug activity in our county.”

Gilead; Evelyn Alexina Dessellier, 754 Railroad Ave., Troy; Tyrone Elvis Diggs, 119 Ivey St., Troy; Barbara Gean Greene, 504 Dennis St., Troy; Shani Gwynn Latham, 138 Lassiter Loop Rd., Troy; Berlinda Marie Waddell, 105 W.
