Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) investigators arrested two men on multiple drug charges after executing a search warrant Feb. 5 on a King Street, Camden, residence.

According to a KCSO press release, narcotics investigators arrested Brandon Hasan Jones, 33, of Columbia and Floyd Lamar Neal, 27, of Camden, and seized a quantity of heroin, crack, cocaine and marijuana.

During the past several weeks, KCSO narcotics investigators received information that multiple types of narcotics were being sold from the residence at 506 King St. in Camden. During that time, investigators gathered enough evidence to obtain a search warrant for the residence, according to the press release.

At about 9:30 a.m. Feb. 5, the KCSO Special Response Team executed the search warrant with investigators seizing approximately 1 ounce of heroin, 4 ounces of marijuana, small quantities of crack cocaine and cocaine powder. Along with the drugs, the investigators found a .380 caliber pistol, according to the press release.

Investigators charged Jones with trafficking heroin (28 grams or more), possession of crack and possession of cocaine. The KCSO charged Neal with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and possession of crack cocaine. Investigators transported both men to the Kershaw County Detention Center where they were later released on bond.

According to the sheriff’s office, Jones has previously been arrested for possession of marijuana, grand larceny, burglary, possession of cocaine, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, trespassing, breach of peace, disorderly conduct, unlawful carrying of a weapon, other weapons violations, hit and run, driving under suspension, giving false information and violation of probation.

The sheriff’s office said Neal has been previously arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of cocaine, within SC. In North Carolina, Neal has been arrested for felony possession of marijuana, felony conspiracy, resisting a public officer, simple assault, intent to sell or deliver marijuana, possession of counterfeit controlled substances, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession with intent to sell schedule IV controlled substance, domestic violence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

“Our drug investigators are making more and more heroin cases as the opioid crisis continues in our county,” KCSO Chief Deputy Jack Rushing said in the press release. “Opioids, heroin being one, are responsible for numerous overdoses and deaths not only here, but nationwide.”
