Man charged with possession with intent to distribute after drug-related complaints, deputies say

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WOLO) – The Orangeburg County Sheriff says a quantity of marijuana was seized after an operation was set up in response to drug-related complaints.

Justin Q. Tyler, 20, was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana in connection with the seizure.

OCSO narcotics investigators concentrated on the Beason Road and Rosedale Drive area during an operation that began on Friday.

On nearby Coconut Court, investigators came upon a vehicle in which an occupant appeared to be smoking marijuana. A male in the vehicle admitted marijuana in the vehicle was his.

A pound of marijuana, a handgun with two magazines that include a 25-round magazine, and a substantial amount of cash were discovered inside the home where the man resided after the home owner gave permission to search the residence.

Bond was set on Tyler at $2,500 during a hearing on Monday.
