Five Arrested in Drug Investigation

   Multiple charges are expected to be coming today from a Laurens County Sheriff’s Office drug investigation. Deputies were at a residence on Highway 25 near Mount Bethel Road north of Ware Shoals last night. Officers arrested five people as a result, including one Ware Shoals area woman who was reportedly observed signalling to pull in at the suspect location then swerved and attempted to drive away.

  In addition to that Ware Shoals woman, a Laurens woman and three men from the Ware Shoals, Donalds and Hodges area were also arrested. They were placed in the Johnson Detention Center this morning, and were being held for charges.
