After two people were arrested on drug-related charges earlier this week, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said it will continue to look for the third suspect they believe is involved with selling narcotics to undercover officers.

Breanna Leigh Church, 23, of Kannapolis, was arrested by Kannapolis police on June 7 and charged with selling five oxycodone tablets to an undercover officer on Oct. 14, 2013, the sheriff’s office said.

Church faces a number of other drug-related charges, including selling a fentanyl patch on Oct. 23, 2013, according to officials. Church was placed under a $100 secured bond by a Cabarrus County Magistrate.

David Michael Reese, 43, of Salisbury, was arrested Monday by Taylorsville police and charged with conspiring to sell oxymorphone, officials said.

The sheriff’s office said Reese’s arrest is related to an undercover purchase of five oxymorphone tablets from Reese and his wife, Natosha Hayden Reese, 33, on Oct. 14, 2013.

David Reese was taken to the Alexander County Detention Center and placed under a $7,500 secured bond.

Natosha Reese is wanted by authorities for four counts related to this transaction, the sheriff’s office said Friday.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts should contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office: 704-216-8700.
