ST. HELENA ISLAND, S.C. (WSAV) — Deputies arrested a man suspected of drug trafficking on St. Helena Island.
The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) said deputies arrested 50-year-old Stevie Roberson and seized drugs, guns and cash from him. Deputies say Roberson was dealing drugs out of a home on Olde Church Road.
BCSO charged Roberson with the following:
- Trafficking cocaine
- Trafficking crack cocaine
- Possession with intent to distribute meth
- Manufacturing crack cocaine
- Possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime
Roberson’s bond is set at $110,000.
BCSO said it received a tip in February that led to the discovery of Roberson. He was arrested during a traffic stop on Thursday after filing three warrants. He was then taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center.
Deputies seized trafficking weights of cocaine, a distribution weight of meth, tools used to make crack cocaine and other pills. Handguns — one which was reported stolen —and a large amount of cash were also seized by deputies, BCSO said.
