Cocaine increase blamed on meth crackdown PDF Print

A recent increase in cocaine arrests in Avery County has Sheriff Kevin Frye on alert.

He blames the increase on law enforcement's efforts to control meth production. 

With pseudo-ephedrine no longer on the shelves- it’s getting tougher for users to make meth. Cocaine may actually be easier to get.


Frye's office is aware of the problem- and taking action against any and all cocaine dealers found in Avery County.


The new drug dogs help. Recently, the dogs reviewed their cocaine training. That’s not all.


Frye's office has an increased network of contacts. It's much easier now to find out when and how cocaine enters the county.

 Anyone with information on drug activity is encouraged to call Frye’s office at (828) 733-2071.
