A search for a wanted person led to the arrest of five people on drug charges in Laurens County Wednesday night.

According to the Laurens County Sheriff's Office, deputies went to a home at 16303 Highway 25 in Ware Shoals to serve an arrest warrant. In the course of doing so, sheriff's office officials say that they were given permission to search the home. During the search, deputies found approximately 70 grams of meth, 50 10-milligram hydrocodone tablets and $750 in cash.

Deputies, along with help from the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office and Ware Shoals Police Department arrested Larry Furman Benton Jr., 42, of Ware Shoals; Norman Daniel Reese, 35, of Donalds; Stacey Lynn Jones, 31, of Clinton, and charged each with trafficking in meth and possession with intent to distribute. Deputies also arrested Gary Barker Plake III, of 28, of Hodges, and charged him with trafficking meth, distribution of a controlled substance and possession of meth.

While searching the home, 47-year-old Susanna Lee Grant, of Ware Shoals, pulled into the driveway. Deputies asked to see her driver's license and during a subsequent search they found two controlled substances in her possession. She was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and driving without a license.

All of the suspects were tranported to the Johnson Detention Center.
