LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Lincolnton police are looking for several suspected drug dealers, who took off during a bust Wednesday morning.

Police said they arrested 39 out of 59 people they were looking for, including one man who had drugs at Lincolnton High School.

Officers don't believe Jesse Crump was selling the drugs on campus.

“It's just a problem that continues to grow, and we continue to make the arrest, and now it doesn't seem like it's improving too much,” said Lt. Brian Greene.

Crump will be in court Thursday on possession charges.
