Drug investigation in Hanahan leads to three arrests, half-pound of meth seized

HANAHAN — The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office arrested three people in connection with a six-month drug investigation, which yielded over a half-pound of methamphetamine.

The county's Narcotics Task Force agents on Nov. 23 arrested Jason B. Hall, 41; Bronwyn Hilbourn, 32; and Stephanie Fults, 33.

Hall was charged with distributing meth, five counts of trafficking meth and five counts of distributing meth within a half-mile of a school zone, said Carli Drayton, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Office said Nov. 24.

Drayton did not specify where in Hanahan the alleged crimes occurred, or near which school Hall is accused of selling the drugs.

Hall also faced an additional charge of possessing a stolen motorcycle.

Hilbourn was charged with possession of meth and possession of a stolen firearm. Fults faces one charge of possession of meth.

The task force, which comprises detectives from the Sheriff's Office, Goose Creek police, Hanahan police and Moncks Corner police, began their investigation in May after receiving a tip that Hall was distributing meth in Hanahan, Drayton said. 

Task force agents purchased meth from Hall on several occasions, she said. They seized more than 250 grams — nearly 9 ounces — of meth.

The agents executed a search warrant on Nov. 23 at Hall's home, and all three of the defendants were taken into custody, Drayton said.

Hall was out on bail at the time of his arrest for charges including trafficking meth in Charleston, distributing meth in Berkeley County and distributing meth in Dorchester County.
