KINGS MOUNTAIN -- A six-month investigation into drug activity in a Kings Mountain neighborhood has led to the arrest of 11 suspects, including three taken into custody Wednesday, the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office says.
One more person is facing charges but remains at large, authorities say.
The sheriff’s office says the investigation followed a series of meetings between the sheriff’s office and residents of the Ebenezer community in Kings Mountain. Authorities say they used patrols, door-to-door contacts, driver license checkpoints and undercover operations as part of the probe into drug sales and other criminal activity.
Authorities say narcotics detectives executed two search warrants Wednesday and made three arrests:
Pamela Beaver, Kings Mountain; two counts each of possession with intent to sell cocaine, and selling and delivering cocaine; one count each of possession with intent to sell marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia; bond set at $100,000.
Kenneth Williams Jr., Kings Mountain; six counts of possession with intent to sell cocaine; four counts of selling and delivering cocaine; two counts of possession with intent to sell marijuana; and one count each of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, DWI, driving while license revoked, and fictitious license plate; $150,000 bond.
Kenneth Williams Sr., Kings Mountain; three counts of possession with intent to sell cocaine; two counts of selling and delivering cocaine; one count of cocaine possession; $100,000 bond.
The sheriff’s office says a possession-of-cocaine warrant is outstanding for Roberta Dee Heisler, of Grover.
