Patrick County Sheriff Dan Smith said a Claudville man has been arrested on multiple counts of distribution of methamphetamine.
Jason Foley Iroler, 45, of 295 Pedigo Ridge Road, was arrested Thursday on five counts each distribute methamphetamine and distribute methamphetamine in excess of 28 grams. He also was charged with one misdemeanor count of operating a common nuisance drug dwelling.
Smith said that the indictments handed down Monday from a Patrick Grand Jury were the result of an investigation that had taken place over the past several months.
“Our evidence suggests that” one person “was one of the major suppliers of methamphetamine in the Ararat and Claudville areas of our county,” Smith said Friday.
The Patrick County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Response Team executed a search warrant on Iroler’s home on Thursday morning, and he was taken into custody.
Methamphetamine allegedly was seized at the residence during the search warrant execution, Smith said.
The Surry County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation.
