Two arrested after deputies seize meth, other drugs in Kershaw County
KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WACH) – Two men were arrested in Kershaw County after deputies seized meth, crack cocaine, cocaine and marijuana, according to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office.
Thirty-year-old Theus Alpanchino Lawton Gillie and 25-year-old Devon Deshawn Jamison were arrested after deputies found 6.4 ounces of meth, 2.7 ounces of crack cocaine, nine grams of cocaine and 14 ounces of marijuana.
“Here are two drug dealers who are selling significant quantities of a variety of illegal drugs in our county and they are already out of jail on bond,” said Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews. “Their arrests are merely an inconvenience for them….just a minor bump in the road.”
Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigators received information that various narcotics were being sold from a Smyrna Rd. residence. As a result of this information, they began monitoring traffic leaving the residence over the period of one month.
Further information provided to them then gave them probably cause to obtain a search warrant for the home.
On the morning of Oct. 17, deputies executed a search warrant and found the drugs along with $6,414.00 in drug proceeds and a Glock .380 handgun.
Gillie was charged with a third offense of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and a third offense of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine.
Jamison was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.
Both men were transported to the Kershaw County Detention Center and have both bonded out of jail.
