ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office says a 22-year-old woman has been arrested for dealing drugs at a home where four children were found living.

Investigators charged Nyashia A. Bradley with unlawful neglect of a child or helpless person, possession with intent to distribute near a school and other drug dealing charges.

On Wednesday night, investigators went to a Belleville Road home to execute a search warrant. Authorities say they had to force entry into the home where they found four adults and four children.

The children were then taken outside while authorities conducted a search of the home.

According to the sheriff's office, Bradley was selling marijuana, cocaine and ecstasy out of the home. Officers say they located 261 grams of marijuana, 5 grams of cocaine, 100 ecstasy pills, a pistol, scales and a grinder.

An incident report states that Bradley's cousin, George Zeigler, was found in the bathroom with cocaine. Zeigler was charged with possession with cocaine.

"Our Narcotics Investigators will continue to work across this county to arrest men and women, young and old, for dealing drugs in this county. It is our responsibility to make Orangeburg County safer for all citizens and we will do whatever it takes to make that happen," Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said.
