FADE was back in action in Carter County on Friday, making four arrests in two separate undercover sting operations.
Three people were arrested in connection to a drug pipeline from Detroit, Michigan to Carter County.
Paul Foutner, 23, of Detroit, and Mario White, 18, of Huntington, W.Va., are being charged with two counts each of first degree trafficking in a controlled substance and one count each of trafficking in marijuana.
Crystal Sodder, 35, of Grayson, is also being charged with first degree trafficking in a controlled substance.
In a separate sting operation at the Super 8 motel in Grayson, Kamario James, 22, of Detroit, was arrested and charged with first degree trafficking in a controlled substance.
The two sting operations were not connected to each other. However, the sting in which Foutner, White and Sodder were arrested took place at the same location as Thursday's sting, which led to 15 drug arrests.
FADE detectives are continuing the investigation and further charges are pending.
