Orangeburg Drug Bust


By Rochelle Dean


Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says 5 Orangeburg men are in custody following an undercover operation.

According to authorities, they were keeping an eye on a house in the 16 hundred block of Vance Road following a long investigation into drugs allegedly being sold out of one of the residences.

Officers entered the home where they found marijuana on one of the suspects hiding in a bathroom. Officials chased two additional suspects accused of trying to flee the scene on foot.

Sheriff Ravenell says " Orangeburg county can take comfort in knowing , there is an active law enforcement presence in this county. To individuals who deal drugs, if you can't read my lips, read these words...not in Orangeburg County, not on my watch."
