Georgetown Co. deputies arrest 2 men on drug trafficking charges
WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office says they arrested two men on drug trafficking charges Friday.
Lamont McCray, 23, was charged with failure to stop for a blue light and trafficking more than 28 grams of heroin/fentanyl, and Vincent Staggers, 28, was charged with trafficking more than 28 grams of heroin/fentanyl.
McCray, who was driving, and Staggers are accused of fleeing a traffic stop near Andrews and were later apprehended in Williamsburg County after allegedly abandoning their vehicle and running.
Sheriff spokesperson Jason Lesley says deputies recovered 77 grams of a gray-blue substance that tested positive for fentanyl.
McCray was out of jail on bond for 2022 kidnapping and armed robbery charges, and Staggers was out on bond from a May 2023 arrest for failure to stop, possession of cocaine, and receiving stolen goods, according to Lesley.
Both men were being held at Georgetown County Detention Center while waiting for a bond hearing.
