The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office made seven drug-related arrests in a five day period starting on July 29 through August 2.

These arrests have been using undercover methods, including surveillance operations, to catch street-level drug dealers, a press release said. The drugs included methamphetamine and opiates.

“These investigations are a continuation of the ongoing, concerted effort where our detectives aggressively seek out drug offenders and make every effort to bring them justice,” said Lt. Jon Propst in a press release.

Brandon Scott Houser, 20, is one of the seven arrested for drug-charges. He is charged with three felony counts related to drug dealing.

He was placed on a $40,000 bond, which is the highest of all those arrested during the five day period.

The Sheriff’s Office is currently looking for two more suspects, Jonathan Craig Smith Jr. and Michael Andrew Buff.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking the public to report any drug activity to Crime Stoppers at 704-736-8909 for a possible $1,000 reward.
