NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- Six people were arrested after a narcotics investigation in Aiken County, including a Safe Communities participant, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office said.

On Thursday, the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms executed two search warrants at the addresses of Powerhouse Road in North Augusta and 122 Weaver Street in Aiken.

The search warrants were a result of a lengthy ongoing investigation involving the trafficking and selling of narcotics in Aiken County.

Officials say throughout the investigation, large quantities of money, cocaine, marijuana, five handguns, one shotgun and four automobiles were seized and secured for evidence.

Those arrested include Michael Craig Bellamy, Tanya Harkins Christy, Terrance Bradley Pollard, Tiheem Khiry Pollard, Grio Tanaka Sapp and Rickey Antionio Williams. Pollard is a Safe Communities participant.

Investigators are looking for Lenny Vantravis Williams in relation to the investigation, who has several arrest warrants.

"The participants with the Safe Communities Initiative are on notice and all people associated with illegal use of drugs and guns," Sheriff Hunt said in a release. "This behavior will not be accepted in Aiken County and we will continue to do everything we can lawfully do to find violators and hold them accountable.”

Anyone who has information to the whereabouts of Lenny Vantravis Williams is asked to call local law enforcement.

Officials said this is an ongoing investigation and there will be more individuals charged in reference to this investigation.
