CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston police have arrested two men following a three month investigation into narcotic sales out of a downtown apartment.

Police say 32-year-old Dean Nelson Seagers and 33-year-old Moses Dennis were both arrested Wednesday after search warrants were executed at 31-B Ashton Street in downtown. The investigation was performed by the Charleston Police Department Special Investigations Unit.

According to a report, investigators found .32 grams of cocaine, 8 ½ grams of heroin, 16 bindles of heroin and about $1,200 in cash. Police also purchased 1.43 grams of cocaine and 6.20 grams of cocaine base during the investigation.

Police were tipped off to the two suspects after citizens informed officials that narcotics were being sold from the Ashton Street apartment.

Seagers, a North Charleston resident, is charged with two counts of distribution of cocaine, two counts of distribution of cocaine base, trafficking heroin and trafficking cocaine.

Dennis is charged with distribution of heroin, trafficking heroin and trafficking cocaine.

This is not the first time the two men have been in trouble for drug related charges.

Officials say Seagers is on federal probation for narcotic offenses, and there was already a bench warrant out for Dennis after he skipped court in a drug trafficking case from 2011.
