ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

The father of two teenage girls found dead in Holly Hill Wednesday morning is expected to go through bond court in Orangeburg County Friday afternoon. 

Christopher Wright, 36, of Holly Hill was arrested after Orangeburg County Sheriff’s deputies served Wright two outstanding warrants for trafficking methamphetamine. 

This was done while OCSO was interviewing Wright regarding the four deaths that happened at his home located at 7050 Old State Road in Holly Hill. 

According to a State Law Enforcement Division arrest record, Wright has been arrested several times for drug related charges dating back to 1997. 

His arrest record shows he was initially arrested in 1997 on cocaine possession charges, with the intent to distribute.

Charges in 2001 show Wright was arrested on manufacturing and possession of several drugs. It was followed with a conviction. 

In 2002 Wright was arrested again on drug charges with the intent to distribute near a school. He was also convicted on those charges. 

On Wednesday, Wright was arrested on the two outstanding SLED warrants for drug trafficking from June of 2013. 

Following Wright’s arrest, the OCSO also arrested Robert Bailey, 35, of Eutawville. 

Per a statement from OCSO, detectives followed leads that led to Bailey’s home where he was found with a large amount of illegal drugs. 

According to a SLED arrest record, Bailey was convicted of manufacturing and possessing drugs in 2004.

In 2005 he was arrested twice on charges of driving under suspension and possession of marijuana. 

On Wednesday, Bailey was arrested on charges of manufacturing and possession of drugs with the intent to distribute near a school, driving under the influence, and possession of a firearm. 

A date for his bond hearing has not been set.
