ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office says deputies who were investigating complaints about loud noise found a stolen motorcycle and made two arrests on methamphetmaine charges.
Authorities charged 37-year-old George Sean Wilson and 31-year-old Angelic Marie Link with possession of less than one gram of meth.
"Officers were investigating numerous complaints about traffic and loud motorcycles leaving an address on Hodson Drive in the early morning hours," Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said."Officers responded to the location and observed George Sean Wilson make a traffic violation while driving a motorcycle. Wilson's motorcycle stalled in a gas station parking lot at the corner of Hodson Drive and Five Chop Road."
Authorities say Wilson was arrested for driving under suspension and searched. According to investigators, the motorcycle Wilson was riding had an altered identification number and was reported stolen from Richland County.
An incident report states that the search also produced Equate Suphedrine and a zip lock bag containing methamphetamine.
Officers say they returned to the Hodson Drive address and discovered the resident, Angelic Marie Link, had outstanding bench warrants.
Investigators say Link consented to a search of her home and officers found a green zip lock bag containing methamphetamines and other paraphernalia associated with the use of methamphetamines.
"We are grateful to the residents of this county for their vigilance in reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods regardless the time of day," Ravenell said."Unfortunately for criminals, the Sheriff's Office does not close down at 5 p.m. on weekdays, we can investigate and make arrests on weekends and in the early morning hours too. We will continue to deploy resources to connect criminal and narcotic activity throughout the county."
