COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Colleton County deputies say they have arrested three teens after finding multiple guns and a half-pound of marijuana at a home on Chisolm Road.

According to a report, multiple law enforcement agencies performed a search warrant on Tuesday at 1597 Chisolm Road in the Round O area.

Authorities say they found approximately a half-pound of marijuana and packaging supplies inside the home. They also found two handguns and an assault rifle with a 50-round magazine.

Deputies arrested 19-year-old Eric Edwards, 19-year-old Javon Farmer, and 18-year-old Imani Richardson.

Edwards was charged with two counts of distribution of marijuana and one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Farmer and Richardson were both charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana each.

Authorities say Edwards and Farmer are both documented as being "prohibited" from possession firearms and ammunition, and additional charges are pending.

Colleton County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team, Colleton County SWAT, SLED, and Walterboro Public Safety Drug Crimes Unit participated in the capture.
