Final suspect in drug roundup arrested


Jeffrey Lane Gurley was arrested on Aug. 14 at about 9:30 a.m. With this arrest, all of the suspects in a recent drug round-up have been arrested.

Gurley, 66, of Roy Cline Road, Rockwell, is charged with two counts of traffiking in opium or heroin, and one count of possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a schedule II controlled substance, all felonies. He is being held under a $10,000 secured bond with a first court appearance scheduled for today.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office has charged a group of people they say were involved in the sale of prescription medication. The charges stem from an extended undercover operation.
