On April 8, authorities arrested dozens of people for allegedly participating in a variety of drug crimes in Iredell County. The operation was coined Spring Sweep 2019.

According to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office, the operation rounded up individuals who had previously sold methamphetamine, heroin and prescription drugs to undercover officers. Dealers of meth and opioids were specifically targeted because those drugs are reportedly taking a huge toll on the community. One male defendant taken into custody was allegedly running an adult entertainment club out of his Statesville home. Law enforcement agents raided the property in February and claim to have found various drugs and firearms. He has been charged with felony drug trafficking, felony selling or delivery of hydrocodone and felony possession with the intent to sell or deliver hydrocodone.

Other defendants arrested in the raid have been charged with a variety of drug crimes, including felony possession with the intent to sell or deliver methamphetamine, felony possession with the intent to sell or deliver heroin and felony possession with the intent to sell or deliver Dilaudid. Some defendants were charged with attempting to sell schedule III controlled substances and marijuana. According to authorities, most of the defendants have previous criminal records. In October 2018, the Iredell County Sheriff's Office conducted another drug raid, which resulted in the arrest of approximately 60 people.

Individuals convicted on state drug charges can suffer serious consequences, including lengthy prison terms and heavy fines. Drug convictions can also cause collateral consequences, such as difficulty finding employment and the loss of educational opportunities. By retaining the services of a criminal defense attorney, it might be possible for defendants to successfully fight the charges and obtain a better outcome.
