A 40-year-old Statesville man is in custody after an undercover investigation left him charged with manufacturing and selling crack cocaine.
Eric Scott Summers was arrested April 8 after investigators obtained a warrant to search his residence at 841 Knox Ave., according to a report by Sheriff Darren Campbell.
Purchases of crack had been made from Summers at the residence, according to Campbell’s report.
During the search, investigators seized a jar from a microwave oven in the kitchen, Campbell’s report said. The liquid in the jar will be tested to determine if it is a controlled substance.
Summers was taken to the Iredell County Detention Center and has been charged with four felony counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule II narcotic (crack cocaine); four felony counts of maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place to sell controlled substances; and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $100,000.
Eric Summers was wearing an ankle monitor for felony convictions on similar charges, according to Campbell’s report.
His prior convictions include felony possession of cocaine in 2012; possession with intent to sell and deliver cocaine; sale of cocaine; and maintaining a vehicle, dwelling or place to sell controlled substances in 2015.
