• Three nabbed for readying pills to sell
By Linda Green

The McDuffie County Sherriff’s Department arrested three people on Sept. 5 for readying pills to sell in McDuffie County.
The pill seizures were part of an ongoing investigation into the illegal use and abuse of prescription drugs in the area, said Sheriff’s Office Major Ronnie Williamson.
One case involved pills in a traffic stop and another a “knock and talk” at the Dearing motel which resulted in an arrest, he said.
Deputy Jared Land and Deputy Dewayne Cowart contacted two women at the Dearing Motel on Augusta Highway which resulted in the seizure of 120 Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone Bitartrate (Vicodin) and Alprazolam pills.
