If you have any information on where Deaton can be located, you are asked to call the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office at 704-878-3100. 

 This investigation was conducted in southern Iredell County after Narcotics Investigators received information about Crystal Methamphetamine being sold and distributed in the Troutman, Mooresville area of Iredell County. 

 Through investigative resources, narcotics investigators were quickly able to identify Robert Wayne Jenkins as the individual distributing Crystal Methamphetamine. The investigators were also able to confirm his ties to Iredell County even though his residence was located in Mocksville.

 Through the investigation, Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Investigators were able to meet with Jenkins, and Justin Nathaniel Deaton in Mooresville. They were able to purchase over one ounce of Crystal Methamphetamine directly from Jenkins. 

 Investigators were able to arrange another purchase of Crystal Methamphetamine from Jenkins, but determined the substance he sold them was counterfeit. Upon completion of this purchase, Jenkins was arrested without incident.

 Jenkins was then taken to the Iredell County Detention Center where he was served with his felony arrest warrants. He then appeared before Magistrate T. Thompson who issued No Bond on these charges.
