Report: Three behind bars for selling drugs out of downtown Charleston apartment

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Investigators say three people are behind bars accused of selling drugs out of a downtown Charleston apartment.

The Charleston Police Department charged 56-year-old Keith Milton, 58-year-old Chanel Middleton and 20-year-old Joshua Kinloch with trafficking cocaine base, possession of cocaine base with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

The charges stem from an investigation last Friday when CPD's Special Investigations Unit executed a search warrant at an apartment on Alexander Street.

Police confiscated 14 grams of cocaine base and a handgun.

An investigation revealed narcotics were being sold from the apartment.

The investigation is ongoing.
