Deep Run man busted in undercover operation

Posted: Updated:

A Deep Run man is behind bars after an undercover operation in Lenoir County.

On September 4, 2013, the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division says they concluded an undercover operation and arrested a suspected drug dealer in Lenoir County.  Narcotics detectives conducted undercover purchases from James Lewis Abercrombie, IV at various meeting locations in Lenoir County.  On four different occasions, Abercrombie sold the prescription narcotic Vicodin during the undercover operation.  In total, 19 vicodin pills were purchased from Abercrombie.

Sheriff Chris Hill stated in a release, “prescription pill abuse is as much a problem in our country as is cocaine, ecstasy, and meth.  Although they are very inexpensive to purchase, the dangers of using these narcotics without the supervision of a physician is inherently dangerous and are controlled for a reason.  My office will continue to vigorously investigate these violations and make the appropriate arrests.”

James Lewis Abercrombie, IV, 30, of Deep Run was arrested and charged with four counts of Maintaining a Vehicle for the sale of Controlled Substance, four counts of Possession with intent to Manufacture/Sell/Deliver Sch. II CS, two counts of Sale / Deliver Schedule II CS, two counts of Trafficking Schedule II by Sale and two counts of Trafficking Schedule II by Deliver.

Abercrombie was confined in the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center under a $335,000 secured bond.
