GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Multiple people were arrested following executions of drug-related search warrants.

Georgetown County Sheriff’s and agents with the 15th Circuit Drug Enforcement Unit arrested seven people during the executions of two drug-related search warrants.

Prior to the search warrants, undercover agents made purchases of heroin in Georgetown at a home in the 900 block of Columbus Road and a second home in the 100 block of Plum Lane.

These transactions made it possible for investigators to secure an arrest warrant for Stacey Stafford for the distribution of heroin. 

The first search warrant was executed at the Columbus Road home Wednesday and the following were arrested, according to Georgetown County deputies:

  • Stacey Jamall Stafford - Distributing heroin (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Crack (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Heroin (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Cocaine (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Marijuana (3rd offense). 
  • Rosita Moses - Possession with intent to distribute Crack (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Heroin (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Cocaine (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Marijuana (3rd offense) and Felon in Possession of a handgun
  • Sanjay Stafford - Possession with intent to distribute Crack (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Heroin (3rd offense), possession with intent to distribute Cocaine (3rd offense) and possession with intent to distribute Marijuana (3rd offense) and Possession of Marijuana.
  • Julius Frasier - Possession of Marijuana and Contempt of Family Court

Stacey Stafford was not arrested at the Columbus Road address but was later arrested by agents when he appeared in General Sessions Court on Thursday to enter a plea in relation to two drug-related incidents in 2017. Agents charged him with distributing heroin and a subsequent arrest found him in possession of crack cocaine and a handgun.  

On Thursday, the second search warrant was executed on Plum Lane, resulting in three additional arrests, Georgetown County deputies say:

  • Ashley Cooper - Possession of Heroin
  • Brittany Miller - Contempt of Family Court
  • Derrick George - Distribution of heroin, possession with intent to distribute Heroin and possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

George is also being held on a detainer for failure to appear on a resisting arrest charge for the Horry County Police Department.

According to an incident report, George attempted to lock himself in the bathroom and flush the heroin and marijuana in the toilet. Law enforcement was able to recover the illegal substances.
