A job well done by all agencies involved. This is welcome news to Stanfield and all local communities. Addicts and dealers dont care about city, county, or state lines and travel to get poison like this and bring it back to our communities. Those same city, county and state lines do have to be recognized by law enforcement however and often make it difficult to fight the problem. So often we see addicts and the problems associated in our small communities but the source is out of our reach (jurisdiction). Arrests like these don't just make a difference in that city, they make a difference in all communities in Stanly County. It is great to see State and Federal agencies helping local communities! #TeamworkIn an effort to combat criminal activity in the City of Albemarle, members of the Albemarle Police Department collaborated with members of the Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations, and Homeland Security executed a search warrant at 577 Washington Lane in Albemarle this morning.

It is the season for political signs to be cropping up all over the place and we would like to take a minute to remind everyone of the regulations regarding the display of political signs.
North Carolina state law requires that permission be received from any property owner before a sign may be placed on private property. Also, the signs may not obscure motorist visibility at intersections or obscure or replace another sign and they must be at least three feet from the edge of the pavement of the road.
The Town of Stanfield's ordinances further restrict the display of political signs within the town limits. While the state of North Carolina permits signs on the state right-of-way during election time, the Town of Stanfield prohibits any signs on the public right-of-way at any time.
The applicable section from the Town of Stanfield Zoning Ordinance is copied below for clarification...
9-11 Temporary Signs Limited
The following temporary signs are allowed without a zoning permit in all zoning districts, but shall be in conformance with all other requirements of this ordinance.
(A) Campaign or election signs shall be permitted provided that: (1) Individual signs shall not exceed 16 square feet in area nor four (4) feet in height. (2) All signs shall be removed within seven (7) days after the election for which they were made. (3) No signs shall be permitted in the public right-of-way.
Any questions regarding the placement of campaign signs can be directed to Officer Christopher McDaniel, CZO at email@example.com. ... See MoreSee Less
