On March 10, 2018, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Drug Unit, partnering with the NC Department of Public Safety division of Probation and the State Bureau of Investigation, arrested Christopher Dufrasne, a Franklin County resident on multiple drug charges. Christopher Dufrasne was charged with the following: one (1) count of Possession of Methamphetamines, one (1) count of Manufacture Methamphetamines, one (1) count of Maintain a Vehicle/Dwelling for the Purpose of Manufacturing Methamphetamines and six (6) Counts of Possessing Methamphetamine Precursors for the purpose of Manufacturing. These charges came as a result of a search warrant that was executed at Dufrasne’s residence located at 105 Timberline Drive, Franklinton, NC.
