Dare County, NC – Eight people have been charged and accused of drug sales and trafficking during Camden County’s Community Betterment Project.

Authorities conducted an undercover drug sales operation and the individuals who were arrested were indicted by a special jury. This was held on May 20th.

Those arrested were Clarence Earl Lee, Daque Rysean Stewart, Reginald Lavern Wilson, Richandra Monet Skinner, Wendy Roundtree, Marvin McPherson, Derrick Oneal Coffee and Tacorius Anduwann Sutton. All are facing felony drug charges. Stewart, Roundtree, and Sutton were all released on bond. The other suspects, who were also granted bond, are still behind bars.

Officials say this project aims to make the county a safer community in which to live. They say this operation sends a message to those involved in the drug trade that this area has a zero tolerance policy.
