A Four Oaks man was jailed on over two dozen counts of various drug offenses following the execution of a search warrant — not a traffic stop as orginally reporteds.

According to the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office, Wesley Adam Smith, 28, was taken into custody Tuesday after investigators conducted a search at a residence on Hobbton Highway in reference to a narcotics investigation.

During the search several narcotics were uncovered and Mr. Smith was taken into custody.

According to records, Mr. Smith was charged with a total of 30 charges. They include eight counts of felony maintaining a place or dwelling for a controlled substance, four counts of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute methamphetamine, three counts each of possession with intent to manufacture, sell or distribute marijuana, selling methamphetamine and delivering methamphetamine. He was charged with two counts of selling marijuana and delivering marijuana along with single counts of selling cocaine, delivering cocaine, possession with intent to sell or deliver cocaine, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was booked into the Sampson County Detention Center under a $500,000 secured bond.
