Arrest Nets Drugs, Cash

WINNSBORO – Department of Public Safety investigators arrested Byron Sampson, 37, earlier this month after a search warrant turned up a significant amount of illegal narcotics at his Palmer Street home.

Chief Freddie Lorick said a controlled buy by undercover agents was made several weeks in advance, giving his department enough to seek a warrant. On April 10, agents raided the Palmer Street home, arresting Sampson and seizing 142 grams of marijuana, 49 grams of crack cocaine, as well as $6,500 in cash and a random selection of cell phones. Sampson has been charged with distribution of both marijuana and crack cocaine.
