Three people were arrested in two apparently unrelated cases after drug agents with the Sanford Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration seized more than a pound of heroin in the city limits, according to a press release from the city.
In one case, Terrance Jerrod White, 42, of Clarksville, Va., and Dexter Antonio Dixon, 37, of Kenansville, were charged on an unspecified date with multiple counts of trafficking in heroin after they were located with 126 grams, or about a quarter of a pound, of heroin, as well as an additional 12 ounces located later at a “stash house.”
Details on the arrest were scant, but police said the arrests were the result of a “month-long investigation” and that at least some of the heroin was “destined for Virginia.” Bond information for those suspects wasn’t immediately available.
On Saturday, agents arrested Casondra Lucy Suggs, who apparently did not provide a current address, on charges of trafficking heroin after a traffic stop at an unspecified location led to the seizure of 500 grams, or just over a pound, of heroin.
Suggs was placed in the Lee County Jail under a $150,000 secured bond.
Authorities, who provided a street value for the seized drugs at more than $170,000 said the cases don’t appear to be related. Mugshots of the suspects were not available.
