Stanly County Sheriff’s Office and the Norwood Police Department are continuing a joint investigation into tackling the county’s opioid epidemic.

In doing so, an operation on Monday in the northern end of the county resulted in the arrest of an individual and the seizure of more than a kilogram of uncut fentanyl.


Jeremy Donovan Chisolm, 36, of Greensboro was taken into custody and 1,022 grams of fentanyl were seized.

Due to this being uncut fentanyl, the sheriff’s office reports it has an approximate street value of $516,000, after being cut to a user level and sold. Per the DEA this is enough fentanyl to potentially kill 500,000 people.

Chisolm was charged with two counts of level III trafficking in opium; possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver opium; maintaining a vehicle for controlled substance; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Chisolm has a first court appearance of Nov. 14 and is in the Stanly County Jail under a $1.5 million bond.
