Watauga sheriff, other agencies seize giant cache of LSD
BOONE -- The Watauga County Sheriff's Office and other agencies have seized 4,800 hits of LSD in a combined undercover investigation, Sheriff Len Hagaman said yesterday.
Hagaman said that it is the largest seizure of LSD in the nation so far this year.
The seizures were made Feb. 3 through an investigation led by the special-operations division of the sheriff's office. The names of people involved have not been released because the investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.
Sheriff's detectives asked for help from the Orange County Sheriff's Office in arresting a number of suspects, including a student at Appalachian State University who is suspected of arranging the LSD shipment from a supplier, Hagaman said.
Raleigh police and the N.C. Highway Patrol also assisted.
