The Darlington County Sheriff’s Office last week intercepted a shipment of drugs worth $250,000 on the street, officials said. The drugs – including 4 pounds of methamphetamines with a street value of $220,000 – were being transported to a home off Wildcat Lane off Cashua Ferry Road in Darlington County, the DCSO said in a news release Friday. A search warrant was executed and “additional drugs and stolen property was found,” the DCSO said. Deputies arrested Eddie Lee Levern Samuel of Darlington on charges of trafficking methamphetamines, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance, the DCSO said. Jail records list a 139 Tallulah St. address for Samuel. In addition to the 4 pounds of methamphetamines, deputies seized 4.5 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $30,000 and 1.2 ounces of psilocybin “in a pack of edibles,” with a street value of $200. According to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, psilocybin is a hallucinogenic chemical that comes from certain mushrooms; its street names include magic mushrooms and shrooms. — Bobby Bryant
