The Special Investigations Division of the Stokes County Sheriff’s Office began the second roundup of Operation Winter Freeze on Jan. 22. During the operation, more opiate dealers who sold narcotics to undercover deputies were arrested, according to a press release.

The Sheriff’s Office conducted narcotics surveillance which led to the arrest of three convicted felons in possession of firearms. Through information gained from a residential break-in, the county’s criminal investigation division, with the assistance of the special response team, discovered more stolen property and stolen firearms from another convicted felon.

“Unfortunately this is yet another example of the drug culture disrupting and destroying the lives of members of our community,” said Stokes County Sheriff Mike Marshall. “The individuals that abuse or sell narcotics routinely either steal or trade property that has been stolen to further their gains or obtain narcotics.”

Marshall added, “The Sheriff’s Office remains committed to fighting the deviant behaviors of the dealers and addicts in our county as we strive to protect those that are trying to lead peaceful lawful lives.”
