PHOTO GALLERY | 25 arrested in Berkeley County drug sweep

Berkeley County Drug Sweep Arrests, March 1-2 (Berkeley County Sheriff's Office)

Deputies with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office Drug Enforcement Unit partnered with Moncks Corner Police and SLED agents arrested 25 people while serving multiple search warrants over the course of nearly 16 hours late this week.

According to the sheriff's office, law enforcement served six search warrants around the county on Thursday and Friday. In addition to the arrests, deputies say they also recovered a stolen vehicle, 2 stolen firearms, and substances that preliminary tests showed to be illegal drugs.

The substances recovered tested positive for cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, marijuana, methamphetamine, hydrocodone, alprazolam, ecstasy and suboxone strips, the sheriff's office says.

The sweep came in response to multiple complaints of drug dealing activity in several areas of the county, the sheriff's office says.

“Drug and substance abuse continue to be at the center of nearly all crimes that we deal with. They truly are the root of almost all evil," Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis was quoted as saying in a press release.
