Lee County sheriff’s deputies announced on Thursday the arrest of two people on charges of distributing fentanyl.
Victor Manuel Lemus, 33, of San Lee Drive was charged with 10 counts of trafficking heroin, three counts of maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, possession with intent to sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, sale and delivery of a schedule II controlled substance, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, and four counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Kailey Breana Anderson, 18, of San Lee Drive was charged with two counts of conspiracy to traffic heroin and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance.
The arrests came on June 2 after a “long term investigation involving an individual that was distributing fentanyl pills” from the residence on San Lee Drive, as well as at the South Park apartment complex on N.C. 87, Sheriff Brian Estes said in a press release.
According to Estes, narcotics agents purchased pills from Lemus on more than one occasion at different locations in Lee County. A search warrant executed on June 2 turned up more than 200 fentanyl pills, approximately 50 THC vape cartridges, and a stolen rifle, Estes said.
Lemus and Anderson were each placed in the Lee County Jail under $200,000 secured bond.
