Police: Man sold $300 worth of prescription pills to undercover officers

An Iredell County man faces six felony drug charges after police say he sold more than $300 worth of prescription medication to undercover officers.

Narcotics detectives with the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office launched a surveillance operation on Andrew Curtis Creech after receiving tips about possible drug activity at a Harmony Highway home, according to a news release.

Over a few weeks, undercover agents bought more than $300 of prescription pills from Creech, 33. Police arrested him after searching the home last Thursday, the release states.

He received a $20,000 bond on six felony drug charges, including two counts of possession with the intent to sell and distribute Schedule II drugs, two counts of selling Schedule II drugs and two counts of maintaining a dwelling for the sale of Schedule II drugs.

He has prior convictions, including selling schedule II drugs in 2010, possession of a stolen firearm in 2007 and obtaining property by false pretense in 2006, the release states. He was still being held Monday at the Iredell County Detention Center.
