Greenwood County narcotics officers arrested a Hodges man Thursday during another meth bust.
Eric Scarboro, 27, of 110 Nation Road, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, distribution of meth, improper disposal of meth waste and felony possession of a firearm in connection with the incident.
Agents from the multi-jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit nabbed the suspect late Thursday afternoon, making it their eighth meth-related bust of July. Scarboro represented the 19th suspect booked on such charges during last month’s wave. DEU officials said they responded to the suspect’s residence to serve arrest warrants on the distribution charge in connection with a controlled drug buy agents conducted last week.
