Five area residents were recently arrested and charged with a variety of drug-related offenses.

Charged in the case are Tabatha Sumner Castevens, 40, and Angela Marie Turney, 35, both of 2876 Perch Road, Pinnacle; Misty Largen Bledsoe, 40, of 126 Moonlight Lane, Dobson; Kevin Michael Holt, 33, of 488 Quaker Church Road, Pilot Mountain; and Jimmy Lynn Davis, 48, of 9265 Weigh Station Road, Rural Hall.

Surry County Sheriff Jimmy Combs said the arrests were the result of a joint operation between four law enforcement agencies — the Surry County Sheriff’s Office, Mount Airy Police Department, Stokes County Sheriff’s Office and North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation.

The probe led to a house at 2876 Perch Road in Pinnacle being raided Sept. 14, though the sheriff’s office did not release the arrests until Sept. 21.

“After tactical officers secured the residence, narcotics detectives seized a small amount of methamphetamine, marijuana, Alprazolam pills, two handguns and various items of drug paraphernalia,” the sheriff said.
