Five Held for Potential Drug Charges

Five people were being held for warrants overnight in the Laurens County Detention Center, reportedly in connection with an ongoing drug investigation. A man and two women from a Cross Hill address were being held, as well as men from Newberry and Hodges. While the actual charge was pending warrants to be served today, the Cross Hill man was already charged with Stealing Electrical Power. The Cross Hill address is in the vicinity of previous charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, although the actual charges expected in yesterday’s arrests were not confirmed.
