A 57 year old man was arrested Monday in an undercover drug investigation by the Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Patrick Ray says Larry Junior Keaton is charged with sale and delivery of a schedule II controlled substance (Dilaudid). His bond is set at $75,000 and his court date is December 13th.
According to Sheriff Ray, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant Monday at Keaton's residence at 1662 South Tittsworth Road, Smithville. As a result of the undercover operation, at least one controlled drug buy was made from the home.
The warrant states that "On or about November 27th, 2007, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department made a controlled drug buy of a schedule II drug (Dilaudid) from Larry Keaton at his residence at 1662 South Tittsworth Road in DeKalb County. A confidential informant who was wired was given recorded funds (money) and did purchase dilaudid from Larry Keaton."
During the search, detectives seized cash and records believed to be evidence of the illegal drug trade.
