DOBSON — A morning raid on Old Highway 601 in Mount Airy where officers discovered 19 grams of crystal meth, resulted in the arrest of the resident, according to a statement released by Surry County Sheriff Graham Atkinson Friday afternoon.
Terry Wayne Jenkins, 28, was charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver methamphetamine, maintaining a drug dwelling, possession of a firearm with an altered serial number and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was booked into the Surry County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond and scheduled to appear in court on June 29.
“The search was the result of an investigation into the trafficking of methamphetamine in Surry County,” Atkinson said. Two other individuals were inside the residence when law enforcement made entry, stated the sheriff.
The Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division was assisted in the raid by the Special Enforcement Team and the Mount Airy Police Department.
In addition to the crystal meth, which was packaged for sale, smoking devices and digital scales were also discovered in Jenkins’ residence, according to Atkinson, who said the investigation is continuing.
