DOBSON — The Surry County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday that eight people were arrested in the past week as part of ongoing drug investigations.

The sheriff’s office said joint work with the Mount Airy Police Department and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigations led to three separate drug busts and a vehicle stop.

According to Sheriff Jimmy Combs, the actions led to the confiscation of several drugs including meth, marijuana, heroin and prescription drugs Suboxone, Xanax and Klonopin.

“The first search warrant was executed at 4558 Haystack Rd, Mount Airy on Wednesday, Aug. 15,” said Sheriff Combs. “Two subjects were arrested and charged as a result of the warrant. Detectives located 14 grams of marijuana worth $280, digital scales, plastic baggies and a 20-gauge pump shotgun.”

Andy Joe Haynes, 60, of the residence, received a $26,000 secured bond after being charged with the following:

• One felony count of possession with intent to manufacture/sell/deliver marijuana;

• One felony charge of possession of a firearm by a felon;

• One felony charge of maintaining a drug dwelling;

• One count misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, Haynes was convicted in 2005 of three counts of felony possession with intent to sell a Schedule II drug, felony possession with intent to sell a Schedule VI drug, as well as 12 other misdemeanors. In 1995 he was convicted of felony habitual impaired driving.

Sammy Alan Dixon, 56, of the residence, received a $26,000 secured bond after being charged with the following:

• One count of felony possession of a firearm in violation of domestic violence order;

• One count felony of possession of firearm by a felon;

“On Thursday, Aug. 16, detectives from all three agencies executed a search warrant at 528 Jim McKinney Rd, Pinnacle. They located three handguns, six rifles, two shotguns, a large amount of ammunition, marijuana, methamphetamine, Suboxone, digital scales, some drug paraphernalia and $452 in cash,” the sheriff said.

While McKinney is charged with possession of a gun by a felon, the conviction might have come in another state. The N.C. DPS database shows only three misdemeanor convictions: possession with intent to sell a Schedule VI drug, DWI level 2 and possession of drug paraphernalia.
