Four people who were arrested in Goose Creek for drug possession faced a bond court judge Saturday morning according to deputies.

Agents with Berkeley County Sheriff's Office Drug Enforcement Unit, along with Goose Creek Police and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office executed the search warrants at two homes on Rutt Lane in Goose Creek after conducting an undercover drug sting.

Deputies seized a large amount of cocaine, crack, marijuana and 11 marijuana plants at two residences on Rutt Lane just off Howe Hall Road Friday afternoon.
