Five arrested in string of undercover stings

SALISBURY — Undercover deputies arrested five Rowan residents in the last three days on drug-related charges.
According to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, detectives raided several homes and performed multiple undercover operations in the arrests.
Information provided by the public was “crucial to identifying those involved in these illegal activities,” a press release said.
Those charged include:
• Gail Ann Troutman, 58, of Bringle Ferry Road. Deputies said Troutman sold hydrocodone out of her home. She was arrested Monday.
Troutman was charged with two counts of felony possession with intent to sell and deliver opium, two counts of selling and delivering opium, four counts of trafficking opium and two counts of felony maintaining a dwelling.
She was in jail Friday under a $150,000 bond.
• Jessica Nicole Goble, 20, of Deal Creek Road in Salisbury.
Deputies arrested Goble’s boyfriend, Richard Lee Jones, on June 29 after authorities said he was running a methamphetamine lab in his Hilltop Lane home.
During the investigation, officers said they found Goble had conspired with Jones in the operation.
She was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine, two counts of possession of precursor materials for making methamphetamine, conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She was placed in jail under a $25,000 bond and remained in custody Friday morning.
• Justin Wade Ames, 26, of Lippard Road in Salisbury.
Ames was arrested on July 11 and charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released after posting a $4,500 bond.
