Rowan drug roundup nets 9 suspects

Rowan County authorities say an investigation into the sale of prescription drugs has netted nine arrests.

Most of the drugs were opium-based, according to investigators. The arrests of Bobby Edward Gouldman and Glenda Gail Deese were announced late last week.

On Friday, agents also arrested Jammie Lynn Brown, Sandra Nicole Ellis, Cindy Michelle Self, Tammy Klock Stanley and Terrie Irene Vorrosso. On Saturday, Michael Wayne Brooker was arrested.
