LAURENS COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on multiple drug charges, including distributing fentanyl, on Aug. 28.
According to a sheriff’s office news release, Zachary Hunter Strange was charged following a long-term investigation into the illegal sale of heroin/fentanyl pills.
He was arrested at a gas station near Highway 221 North and Interstate 385 in Laurens.
Investigators found around 12 grams of fentanyl in powder form, a quantity of suboxone and a quantity of marijuana.
Strange was charged with possession with intent to distribute fentanyl-2nd offense, two counts of distribution of fentanyl-2nd offense, distribution of a controlled substance- 2nd offense and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance – 2nd offense.
“This is another example of a useless criminal trying to poison our community with these drugs. As you can see from the charges, Mr. Strange didn’t learn his lesson the first time,” Sheriff Don Reynolds said. “We are working closely with the Solicitor’s office to see that he is punished accordingly this time. I want to make my message clear to these drug pushers out here. If you choose to sell this poison in Laurens County, we will relentlessly pursue you and we will seek the most aggressive prosecution the legal system has to offer.”
