BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Investigators with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office say a tip led to one arrest and the confiscation of drugs and guns at one neighborhood. 

Authorities arrested Scott Baisden of Wilhite Drive of Ladson and charged him with numerous drug dealing and weapon charges.

He's expected in bond court at 7 p.m. at the Hill Finklea Detention Center. 

Baisden's arrest stems from an investigation on Monday when agents from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Drug Enforcement Unit worked a complaint regarding illegal narcotics sales from the management office at the Sineath Estates Mobile Home Community on Wistiria Drive in Ladson. 

"After agents conducted a controlled buy of heroin from the location, a search warrant was executed," BCSO officials said. 

The search warrant resulted in the seizure of the following: 

7 gross grams of a crystal like substance that did field test presumptive for methamphetamine
misc. drug paraphernalia
4.2 gg of a tan powdery substance that did field test positive for Heroin

Following the search at Wistiria Drive, another search was conducted at a home on Luke Lane where investigators seized the following: 

3 pistols
1 sawed off shotgun
misc. drug paraphernalia
66 gross grams of a clear crystal like substance that did field test presumptive for methamphetamines
misc. prescription medications
.3 gross grams of a white powdery substance that did field test presumptive for cocaine
61 gross grams of a green plant material that did field test presumptive for marijuana
11 gross grams of a tan powdery substance that did field test presumptive for heroin

“This case started with a tip from a citizen. This shows what is possible when members of the community have confidence that we will help. Working together, we will systematically remove dangerous drug dealers from the community,” Sheriff Lewis stated.
