CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -Charleston Police are looking for Walter Demetrius Brown.

Brown, 51, is wanted on six charges of distribution of heroin and distribution near a school.

"In the warrants, it alleges Mr. Brown has been selling heroin in the area of Hanover Street, Nassau Street, Columbus Street," said Charleston Police Cpl. Fred Bowie.

Bowie said investigators have proof Brown's been dealing drugs. "We had him on three different occasions down there selling and they were to undercover agents," he said.

"Very dangerous drug. A few years ago, somewhere around 2000, 2001 we had five deaths in the City of Charleston as a result of some bad heroin that came in."

Bowie said Brown should be considered dangerous. "The situation is people who tend to buy this will engage in violent crime," he said. "Sometimes territorial spats will result in violent crimes and that sort of thing."

Police have been looking for Brown since last October.  If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
