LENOIR, NC (WBTV) -
A four month drug investigation led to the arrest of Clyde Russell Icard, 30, of Granite Falls, on Friday.
Icard, who was arrested by the Ice Unit in August of this year for multiple drug offenses and jailed, made bond and was back at it according to a news release from the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office.
After several months of surveillance, Narcotic Agents with the Sheriff's Office Ice Unit managed to infiltrate inside his organization and subsequently conducted several undercover purchases of illegal drugs from him.
During the month of September, Ice Agents, with the help of a confidential informant, made three separate undercover buys from Icard. During this operation, methamphetamine, cocaine, and prescription pills were bought. Icard moved locations and two months later, Ice Agents caught up with him again.
"It's not uncommon for drug dealers to move around in an attempt to be elusive" – Sheriff Alan C. Jones
During the month of November, an undercover Ice Agent was introduced to Icard and made two separate buys of illegal prescription pills from him.
In December, an informant working for the Ice Unit, made another controlled buy for illegal drugs from Icard out of his home which led to the issuance of a search warrant. During the morning hours on December 20th, the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office SWAT Team executed the search warrant without incident.
Icard was arrested and charged with the drug offenses listed below. More charges are pending. Icard's vehicle, a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe was seized by Ice Agents.
The drugs seized during this investigation were 7.2 grams of cocaine, 2.5 grams of methamphetamine, oxycodone and percocet prescription pills. The drugs seized during this investigation have a street value of $1,175.00 according to North Carolina State Guidelines.
"You would think he would have learned his lesson the first time he got arrested, instead he's going to spend his Christmas in jail". – Sheriff Alan C. Jones
Icard has been charged with two counts of Felonious Possession with Intent to Sell/Deliver Oxycodone, two counts of Felonious Sell Oxycodone, two counts of Felonious Deliver Oxycodone, and one count of Felonious Maintain a Dwelling to Keep/Store a Controlled Substance, according to a news release.
Icard was incarcerated under a $75,000 secured bond in the Caldwell County Detention Center and has a District Court date in Lenoir on Friday.
