A Friday drug bust makes Ashe County’s stance on drugs
perfectly clear: Drugs will not be tolerated.
Thanks to the efforts of West
Jefferson police and the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office, two West Jefferson drug
suspects face drug charges. Undercover deputies were able to buy drugs from the
suspects- and obtain enough probable cause for a residential search. The search
and entry team found various illegal drugs in a home on West Third Street,
including amounts of prescription medication large enough to lead to
trafficking charges. 40-year-old Timmy McPeak and 42-year-old Tammy McPeak
faces several charges, including conspiring to traffic opium or heroin. The two
were held in the Ashe County jail under a $250,000 secure bond.
