Sixteen arrested in Gaston Co. drug roundup, nine more sought

GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Sixteen people have been arrested in Gaston County after officers began a round-up and arrested people for drug charges.

The Gaston County Police Department worked with the Dallas Police Department to start arresting people on Friday. Officials say the arrests followed joint investigations conducted over a five month period.

Charges range from the sale and delivery of crack cocaine, pills, methamphetamine and marijuana, to trafficking in opiates.

One of the investigations led to the discovery of a methamphetamine lab in Lincoln County, officials said.

Most of the arrests were sparked from complaints from residents. Sixteen of the 25 offenders have been arrested and warrants remain outstanding on nine offenders.
