Drug dogs continue to impress Avery law enforcement PDF Print

Avery County’s drug dogs have yet to disappoint. Two separate incidents resulted in arrests that would not have been possible without K-9 units, said Avery County Sheriff Kevin Frye.

One of the most recent successes resulted in the arrest of 26-year-old Jonathan Rhodes of Bristol, Virginia. Rhodes was initially investigated for driving left of the center line. That investigation and an exterior vehicle sniff by a K-9 led to charges of methamphetamine possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additional charges may be pending, depending on SBI lab results. Rhodes is in Avery County custody under an $11,000 secured bond.

 Another incident Frye is proud of occurred over the weekend when, again thanks to the drug dogs, 26-year-old Christopher Hamilton of Reidsville was charged with possession of methadose pills, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 7 methadose pills, some of which had already been split, two straws and a pill crusher were found. Hamilton was released after making the $3,000 bond.
