Another Sampson County resident has found himself in trouble with law enforcement courtesy of a nearly year-long undercover drug campaign that reached its pinnacle with raids that began just over a week ago and are continuing until some 100 individuals have been taken into custody.
The Sampson County Sheriff’s Department has released the name of that individual taken into custody Monday as part of Operation Double Tap.
In all over 100 individuals have been targeted as part of the county’s operation, with some 300 charges expected to be leveled.
The latest to be arrested is McKenzie Cory Raynor, 23, 304 Eastover Ave., Clinton. He is charged with 2 counts maintaining a vehicle/dwelling for the sell of a controlled substance, 3 counts sell marijuana, 2 counts deliver marijuana and 3 counts possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance.
At the time of his arrest, officers seized 11.90 grams of marijuana.
Raynor was placed under a $40,000 secured bond and released later the same day. He is expected to make his first appearance in Sampson County District Court on Aug. 29.
