Five arrested in North Charleston drug bust

Four men and a woman were arrested in a drug raid at a North Charleston house this morning.

North Charleston police narcotics agents executed a search warrant at 2129 Victory Ave. about 9 a.m., according to police spokesman Spencer Pryor. Police confiscated 2.4 ounces of cocaine base, a gram of cocaine, 9 grams of marijuana, items used to make, package and distribute illegal drugs and a 9 mm Smith and Wesson pistol reported stolen to Summerville police, he said.

Five people were charged with trafficking cocaine base, manufacturing cocaine base, possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime and possession of a stolen firearm.

They are Antonio Law, 32, and Lanaroi Huger, who live at the house; Trevis Eady, 35, of McGee Road in Rock Hill; Reginald Hamilton, 26, of Hunters Ridge in North Charleston; and Ebonee Middleton, 20, of East Shore Lane in Charleston.

Law was also charged with possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a crime of violence.

He pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary in 2000 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, minus his 17 months in jail, according to Charleston County court records.
