Two Greenwood people face drug charges after being arrested Wednesday following a drug bust.
Tammie Lynn Harvley, 45, of 708 McKenzie Road, was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine - 28 grams or more, but less than 100 grams, first offense - in connection with the incident. Christopher Malone, 40, of 423 Piedmont Ave., faces charges of possession with intent to distribute, methamphetamine, possession of ephedrine in altered state (first offense) and misdemeanor drug possession, drugs in schedule I, LSD and schedule II (cocaine) stemming from the arrest, records indicated. Court documents show he was also charged with receiving stolen goods, value $2,000 or less, in connection with a separate incident.
Greenwood County investigators searched a home in the 100 block of Foxcroft Drive, just south of S.C. 148 in Greenwood, to recover stolen goods Wednesday morning. According to a Greenwood County incident report:
During the raid, officers were able to determine that the suspects had involvement with the stolen items that were recovered during the search. A confidential informant then notified one of the deputies that Malone was trying to sell a stolen four-wheeler ATV.
Officers met with the informant, read text messages sent to the person by Malone, and had the informant set up a buy with the suspect for $400.
Malone also texted the informant offering to sell a "quantity of methamphetamine." When he arrived at the informant's residence to sell the vehicle, deputies took him into custody and found a small quantity of meth as well as several pills in his pockets. Officers then went outside and found Harvley inside the vehicle in which Malone arrived. They also took her into custody.
