Berkeley County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested and charged three men with dealing crack cocaine as part of a two-month undercover operation on St. Thomas Island.

Deputies raided a house at 824 Perrineau Lane about 2 p.m. Wednesday and took all three men into custody. One of the men was tackled by a K-9 unit after he attempted to run, said Dan Moon, public information officer.

Moon said deputies made a total of eight undercover buys from the three men dating back to Nov. 18, as part of a sting operation called “Cracking the Rock.”

Moon said the operation began after many residents in the Clements Ferry, Daniel Island and St. Thomas Island area complained about men brazenly dealing drugs and intimidating residents.

There was a shooting in the area on Nov. 25, in which one man was injured. Moon said that shooting was believed to have been drug related.

Moon identified the three men arrested Wednesday as Terrance Brown and brothers Jason and Bernard Capers. All three face multiple charges of distributing crack, Moon said.
