ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have arrested a 30-year-old man after deputies found rifles, guns and drugs at a home in Orangeburg.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office charged Antoine McShawn Mack with trafficking crack cocaine, trafficking cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and two counts of possession of a stolen firearm.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says 10 weapons and $10,000 worth of crack cocaine, cocaine and marijuana were seized during a search warrant last week. Investigators say they executed the search warrant at Mack's home on Sydney Circle and also found rifles, handguns, a hunting bow and narcotics.

We are covering the entire county and we are coming after you hard and quickly."
