CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Law enforcement agencies in Georgetown County have arrested 15 suspects in a warrant round up operation.

Georgetown County Sheriff Carter Weaver said the operation, “Warrant Round-up 12/9/19," launched on Monday following months-long investigations and drug purchases throughout the county. Authorities obtained arrest warrants for 28 suspected drug dealers.

On Monday, law enforcement officers fanned out across the county in search of the suspects as well as six additional violent suspects.

“These arrests demonstrate the sound working relationships among law enforcement agencies in Georgetown County and the new normal in the sheriff’s office, making every attempt to rid our communities of those who would do harm,” Weaver said.

According to the sheriff’s office, 15 people were jailed at the Georgetown County Detention Center on the existing warrants as well as additional charges relating to the arrests.

“AJ Rasheed Brown, who had vowed not to be arrested, was found hiding beneath a pile of clothes in his house after officers heard movement inside the residence and entered the home with a search warrant in order to arrest him,” GCSO officials said."At the home of Shon Moore, previously convicted of a drug offense, officers found not only Moore but distribution level quantities of heroin, cocaine and pills."

Deputies say law enforcement officers found Jabyron “Smatty” Richardson, a convicted felon, with a loaded .40 caliber pistol and 100 rounds of ammunition as well as significant quantities of crack and powder cocaine, marijuana, Oxycodone and Suboxone.

“Marcus Brown was found in the company of Camren Green and Rahkeem Williams,” the sheriff’s office said. “All three were in possession of distribution levels of crack cocaine, heroin, marijuana and Ecstasy. They were also found in possession of two loaded pistols, one of which was reported stolen in the city of Georgetown.”

All of the suspects were locked up at the Georgetown County Detention Center.

“Law enforcement officers continue to search for additional defendants and further arrests are anticipated,” GCSO officials said.
