8 arrested in marijuana operation in DC


COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says eight people have been charged with trafficking marijuana after an eight-month investigation that led to the seizure of more than 700 plants from indoor growing operations in the Midlands.


Wilson announced the arrests Friday, following a joint investigation by local, state and federal law enforcement. He says the high-grade plants found in Lexington, Richland and Orangeburg counties are valued at more than $3.5 million.


The suspects arrested Wednesday are from Gaston, Orangeburg, North and Swansea.


Wilson says the investigation started in January.


He says more arrests are expected.
