Drug investigation leads to arrests in Beaufort County

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

On Thursday, members of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office Drug Investigations Section arrested Daulton Young and Charles Miller on drug charges. 

Over the course of the last month, investigators received information that the residence located at 26 Great Barracuda Lane was being used to sell and distribute illegal drugs. During this investigation, controlled purchases of illegal drugs were conducted from the residence which resulted in investigators obtaining a search warrant for the location. 

The search warrant was executed at the residence. Suspect Daulton Young, a female subject, and four children were located in the residence. The children were released to a relative.  

As a result of a search warrant, quantities of crack cocaine, marijuana and scheduled pills were located in the residence.  

Miller returned to the residence while the warrant was being executed, and was arrested for the crack cocaine and the controlled pills. Young was charged with the marijuana that was found. 

Members of the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office Drug Investigations Section also arrested Terry Welborn on drug charges. 

Drug investigators received information over the past year in reference to a subject by the name of Terry selling scheduled drugs from a residence in Port Royal. As a result of obtaining information from several different sources, investigators were able to identify the subject as Terry Welborn, of Tamara Lane in Port Royal.  

According to BCSO, surveillance conducted on the residence resulted in the seizure of scheduled drugs from another subject. Investigators were then able to conduct a controlled purchase of drugs from Welborn, leading to the development of probable cause for securing a search warrant for both Welborn's residence, as well as a safe deposit box utilized by Wellborn for storage of drugs and currency. 

On Oct. 29, the search warrant was executed at both locations. Quantities of various pills and crack cocaine were seized, as well as $25,000 in cash.  

Welborn was arrested on multiple drug charges.

The investigation remains active at this time.
