Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office narcotics officers arrested one person while conducting a surveillance operation in western Lincoln County on August 26, 2020.

During the surveillance operation last night, the individual attempted to flee from narcotics investigators. About five miles into the chase the suspect’s vehicle broke down and he jumped from the car and fled on foot. The man was quickly apprehended by officers.

Investigators seized a handgun and several different drugs that Brandon DeWayne Canipe, 24, of Gantt Road, Vale, NC had in his possession. He was charged with possession with the intent to manufacture, sell and deliver a controlled substance Schedule II, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance Schedule IV, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of drug paraphernalia, resist, delay and obstruct a public officer, speeding to elude arrest and no operator’s license. He was also charged with a probation violation.

Canipe is being held in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $40,000 secured bond on the local charges and a no bond hold on the probation violation.

Most drug related investigations begin with tips or complaints from citizens. Detectives then begin using various tools and investigation methods, such as a surveillance operation, to build a case. Anyone with information concerning drug related activity is urged to call the Drug Tip line at 704-736-8606 or Lincolnton/Lincoln County CrimeStoppers at 704-736-8909. All tips are investigated and callers can remain anonymous.
