Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A surveillance operation by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division has led to the arrest of a Charlotte man on drug charges.

On October 28, 2022 narcotics investigators were conducting surveillance on a residence in the Crouse area when officers observed what they believed to be a drug transaction take place. When the vehicle involved in the transaction left the scene, officers followed the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop on West NC Hwy 150 Bypass after they observed a traffic violation.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Lt. A. Manns and his K-9, Cova, came to the scene and the K-9 alerted to the presence of a controlled substance in the vehicle. Narcotics investigators searched the vehicle and seized just over two ounces of methamphetamine and more than two ounces of heroin from the vehicle.

Fidel Gutiferrez Gutierrez, 26, of Charlotte was arrested and charged with one felony count of maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, two felony counts of trafficking in heroin and one felony count of trafficking in methamphetamine. He was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate and placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $500,000 secured bond.
