State Grand Jury Investigation into Alleged Cocaine and Crack Trafficking Results in Indictment of 13 People

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson announced that 13 people have been indicted as a result of a State Grand Jury investigation into a multi-county cocaine trafficking organization that was largely operating in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.  The State Grand Jury returned indictments alleging a conspiracy to traffic cocaine dating back to January 2011, and a conspiracy to traffic crack cocaine dating back to January 2015.  The State Grand Jury also indicted for various other offenses related to trafficking of cocaine and crack, including distribution of cocaine, distribution of crack, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and unlawful conduct towards a child.  The case has resulted in the seizure of significant quantities of cocaine and crack cocaine through search warrants and controlled purchases.

The case was investigated by the South Carolina State Grand Jury with a partnership of the Attorney General’s State Grand Jury Section, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, the Mount Pleasant Police Department, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office, and the North Charleston Police Department. The cases will be prosecuted by Senior Assistant Attorney General Joshua Underwood and State Grand Jury Section Chief Attorney S. Creighton Waters.

Attorney General Wilson thanked all the investigative agencies involved and cited this case as a great example of inter-agency cooperation.
