Man faces drug charges following police raid

A South Carolina man is facing drug charges after the Jasper County Sheriff's Office raided his home on April 12. The 47-year-old man was taken into custody after allegedly attempting to run away from his Ridgeland home on Orange Grove Road after the sheriffs appeared with a search warrant. Several police agencies were involved in the raid, including the Bluffton Police Department and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, in addition to the sheriff's deputies.

South Carolina police seize drugs during undercover action

Police in South Carolina have reported that an undercover operation conducted in Columbia's Millwood Avenue corridor on April 11 led to the seizure of more than $13,000 in currency, almost a pound of marijuana and about one gram of crack cocaine. Two men were also taken into custody during the covert investigation, which was carried out by members of the Columbia Police Department's Organized Crime and Narcotics Unit.

Proposed South Carolina bill would show leniency to older inmates

South Carolina closed seven prisons between 2003 and 2016 as its inmate population dropped, but the number of inmates aged 55 years of age or older grew from just 833 to 2,294 during the same period. The swelling senior citizen prison population has raised concerns in Columbia, and lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle have proposed changes that would allow inmates who are 60 years old or older to petition for parole after serving at least half of their sentences. Supporters of the bill say that older inmates have extremely low recidivism rates and are very expensive to incarcerate.

South Carolina man taken into custody for cocaine

On March 26, authorities in Sumter County attempted to pull over a Nissan registered to a man who had an outstanding warrant. However, as authorities tried to stop the 32-year-old's vehicle, the vehicle made its way to Woodlawn Avenue where it was involved in an accident. The man then reportedly fled his vehicle and hid in the attic of a home that he lived in.
