FADE arrests 4 more in Carter
The FADE Drug Task Force arrested four in Carter County on Friday, bringing its total number of arrests to 19.
Three people were arrested in connection to a drug pipeline from Detroit to Carter County, according to a FADE press release.
Paul Foutner, 23, of Detroit, and Mario White, 18, of Huntington, were charged with two counts each of first-degree drug trafficking and one count each of trafficking in marijuana.
Crystal Sodder, 35, of Grayson, also was charged with first-degree drug trafficking.
In a separate sting operation at the Super 8 Motel in Grayson, Kamario James, 22, of Detroit, was arrested and charged with first-degree trafficking.
The two sting operations were not connected to each other. However, the raid in which Foutner, White and Sodder were arrested took place as an operation Thursday that resulted in 15 drug-related arrests.
FADE detectives are continuing the investigation and further charges are pending.
