An undercover operation on illegal drug activity has resulted in the arrest of a Lawrence County teenager.

Capt. Adam Brewer of the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department said Preston Chase Berryhill, 18, of Loretto, is charged with two counts of sale of a schedule VI controlled substance, unlawful possession of a schedule VI controlled substance for resale and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Reports indicate the arrest was made after law enforcement got information about the possible sale of illegal drugs.

Deputies said surveillance was set up at a location on U.S. 43 outside of Loretto and Berryhill was seen on two separate occasions selling marijuana.

He is being held on a $60,000 bond in the Lawrence County Detention Center.
