DARLINGTON, S.C. – According to Sheriff Tony Chavis, two individuals were arrested Wednesday afternoon following the service of a search warrant at a mobile home on Dingo Ln. near Timmonsville Hwy.  Investigators with the Drug Enforcement Unit and Deputies assigned to the Special Incident Response Team served the search warrant.  

“Investigators were able to locate about 7 grams of heroin, a loaded .380 caliber pistol, a loaded .410 shotgun, a weight scale, and currency,” stated Sheriff Tony Chavis.  “Because of the hard work of my Investigators, we were able to put two in jail for pushing this poison in our community.”
