The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office said it has charged an 18-year-old Mooresville man with 20 drug-related charges following an investigation that lasted weeks.
Griffin C. Murray was charged in the case, authorities said, and a Catawba County juvenile who had been reported missing has charges pending against him.
The sheriff’s office said it had been investigating reports of someone selling prescription drugs and high-grade marijuana in the Brawley School Road area of Mooresville.
A surveillance operation took weeks to identify the suspect. Undercover officers made numerous buys of hydrocodone, Xanax and marijuana from the suspect, the sheriff’s office said.
