An Enfield man wanted on heroin trafficking charges surrendered Monday to the agent who investigated the case.

Captain A.M. Harris of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement Jessie Lakeitha Archer surrendered to Agent D.J. Epperson shortly before 2 p.m. at the sheriff’s office.

Harris said this morning a bail bondsman was on scene at the time of Archer’s surrender.

Archer was served with the outstanding warrants based on an investigation conducted by Epperson last week.

The search warrant execution at his residence around 4 p.m. Tuesday led to the seizure of $16,180 in counterfeit currency. The breakdown of the bills was 104 hundred-dollar bills and 289 twenty-dollar bills.

In addition to the fake money, agents seized three bricks of heroin — 150 bindles — 15 long guns, three handguns and several items of drug paraphernalia.

Epperson obtained warrants for Archer’s arrest on counts of trafficking heroin, possession with intent to sell/deliver heroin, maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a counterfeit instrument.

He received a $10,000 bond and September 18 court date.
