Two arrested on separate marijuana, cocaine charges in Berkeley County
More than $60,000 worth of marijuana and cocaine were seized on Wednesday when the Berkeley County Drug Enforcement Unit arrested two men at separate residences.
Deputies also confiscated a stolen gun allegedly in the possession of a convicted felon, Berkeley County sheriff’s spokesman Dan Moon said Thursday.
Floyd Woods, 39, was arrested at a Bayboro Circle residence in Goose Creek and is charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of a stolen firearm, felon in possession of a firearm, and distribution of a controlled substance in proximity of a school, Moon said.
Drug Enforcement Unit Capt. Mike Williams said deputies at Woods’ home found about 2.4 ounces of cocaine, valued at $7,000.
Moon said Drew William Woodard, 24, was taken into custody at a residence on Pot-O-Gold Road in Moncks Corner and charged with trafficking marijuana. Woodard is also charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle and failure to stop for blue lights and siren, Williams said.
Williams said agents found about 12 pounds of marijuana, with an estimated value of $55,000, when they arrested Woodard.
Both suspects are being held at the Hill-Finklea Detention Center in Moncks Corner. Woodard’s bond was set at $23,000. Woods is awaiting a bond hearing, Moon said.
