Eight people have been arrested and charged as a result of a four month long investigation.

Captain Kevin Threlkeld of the Simpsonville Police Department stated that "Operation Block Party" started after police received an anonymous tip in February. As a result of the tip, narcotics investigators began investigating a methamphetamine manufacturing operation around the Woodside Mill area in the Simpsonville city limits.

As a result of the raid, police discovered that a group of people were also involved in the manufacturing process.
