Shortly after 10 pm on July 12th, 2017, acting on information in a continuing investigation involving Mcafee and Bryant, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office investigators and deputies served a search warrant looking for stolen items that were reportedly at the Sunny Point Road residence occupied by Mcafee and Bryant. During the search for the stolen goods, a second search warrant was served upon the discovery of suspected methamphetamine. During the searches, handguns, US currency, and several items believed to be stolen along with an extremely large quantity of methamphetamine and a sizable amount of marijuana, were seized from the residence.
Mcafee and Bryant were arrested at the Sunny Point residence and transported to the Cherokee County Detention Center where they are being held on a $200,000.00 secure bond for Trafficking in Methamphetamine. They both are scheduled to appear in Cherokee County District Court on August 1st, 2017.
Sheriff Palmer stated, “We continue our efforts to pursue those who continually flood our community with dangerous drugs. This investigation is far from over as we are pursuing the leads to track the stolen items to their rightful owners. This is the third time we have been to the residence and as you can see we do not come up empty. I also emphasize that we continue to seize drugs and guns at the same time which make for a very dangerous combination. We anticipate more charges in the near future.”
