Comments Off on Man, woman face meth charges: Man also had stolen motorcycle

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell reported Monday afternoon that two people have been arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and a stolen motorcycle.

“Officers were investigating numerous complaints about traffic and loud motorcycles leaving an address on Hodson Drive in the early morning hours. Officers were informed of similar activity on Monday, Aug. 27 at 3 a.m.,” Ravenell said.

He said officers responded to the location and observed George Sean Wilson, 37, of 1852 Henry Road, Norway, commit a traffic violation while driving a motorcycle.

“Wilson’s motorcycle stalled in a gas station parking lot at the corner of Hodson Drive and Five Chop Road. Wilson was arrested for driving under suspension and searched,” the sheriff said. “The search produced Equate Suphedrine and a zip-lock bag containing methamphetamine.”

He said officers returned to the 1102 Hodson Drive address and discovered a 31-year-old female resident there had outstanding bench warrants against her. The woman consented to a search of her home, and officers found a green zip-lock bag containing methamphetamines and other paraphernalia associated with the use of methamphetamines, Ravenell said.

“Further investigation indicates the motorcycle Wilson was riding had an altered identification number and was reported stolen from Richland County,” he said.

“We are grateful to the residents of this county for their vigilance in reporting suspicious activity in their neighborhoods regardless the time of day. Unfortunately for criminals, the sheriff’s office does not close down at 5 p.m. on weekdays,” Ravenell added. “We can investigate and make arrests on weekends and in the early morning hours, too. We will continue to deploy resources to connect criminal and narcotic activity throughout the county.”
