Four suspects identified in an undercover investigation by the Iredell County Sheriff's Office face felony drug charges.

ICSO narcotics investigators have been conducting surveillance operations for several months in the Town of Mooresville and the surrounding area as part as "Operation Southbound," Sheriff Darren Campbell said in a news release.

After identifying numerous suspects, undercover investigators made hand-to-hand purchases of illegal drugs from these individuals, Campbell said. This operation is ongoing and more arrests are anticipated in the future, he added.

The ICSO announced the following arrests:

Timothy Franklin Wing, 26, of Planters Lane, Mooresville, is charged with felony possession with Intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine, felony sell and deliver methamphetamine, and two felony counts of conspiring to sell and deliver methamphetamine. His bond was set at $10,000.

Through ongoing operations like this one, the sheriff's office wants the community to know that it is actively responding to citizen complaints and is pursuing drug dealers, Campbell said.
