A Gillard Road woman was jailed Wednesday on multiple narcotics charges, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Complaints from the community led the sheriff’s office to conduct surveillance on Jacqueline Gray Spivey, 63, of 241 Gillard Rd., Chadbourn. An undercover operative made a successful controlled buy at the residence.

Officers raided the home in the early morning hours of Wednesday, and seized a .380 handgun, paraphernalia, $2,000 cash and a variety of narcotics, including Tramadol hydrochloride tablets, Buprenorphine tablets, Suboxone strips, Lyrica capsules, Oxycodone hydrochloride tablets and Fentanyl patches.

Spivey was held under a $132,000 bond, charged with trafficking, being a felon in possession of a firearm, maintaining a dwelling for drug activities, paraphernalia and possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver narcotics. 

Sheriff Jody Greene thanked the members of the community who provided information about the case.

“Your love of this county and concern for your neighbors connects us.  Together, we will continue to make a difference in Columbus County.”
