Police Arrest 3 People In Lancaster After Finding Illegal Drugs Inside Home
LANCASTER, S.C. — Three people were arrested in Lancaster after police executed a search warrant of a home on Tilly Lane and say they found illegal drugs inside.
Deputies say George Haggins, 50, Antonio Marsh, 50, and Tiffany Pressley, 30, were arrested on drug charges after their home was searched on Friday, July 16th by agents of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force, SWAT officers, and a K-9 unit.
After agents gathered information that illegal drugs would be in the home, they removed all five occupants of the home outside while they conducted a search on that Friday.
Police say suspected crack cocaine was found in the master bedroom and in the living room, suspected marijuana was found in the living room, and digital scales were also seized from the bedroom during their search.
Only three out of five occupants of the home were arrested following the search, according to a news release.
Police say Haggins was charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine and Possession with Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine in Proximity of Erwin Elementary.
Marsh and Pressley were each charged with Possession of Crack Cocaine and Simple Possession of Marijuana, according to a news release.
Deputies say Pressley was released on a personal recognizance bond on July 16th, and Haggins and Marsh posted bonds and were released on July 18th.
Sheriff Barry Faile says, “Every day our Task Force agents are receiving information about drug sales by particular people and from particular locations in the county. They work that information and very often build cases like this which result in search warrants which lead to the seizure of drugs and the arrest of people who are selling them. This was a safe and successful operation.”
