Police seize cocaine, weapons in raid; 3 children removed from home
Monday, July 18, 2011

COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia police found 60 grams of cocaine inside a safe bolted to a shelf in the closet of a home they raided Friday morning in the Lyon Street neighborhood.

The department’s drug suppression team received a citizen’s tip about possible drug dealing inside a home on the 2500 block of Bratton Street, said Jennifer Timmons, a police spokeswoman. Officers went to the home about 11 a.m. and found 10 grams of cocaine and then noticed the safe. After receiving a search warrant for the safe, the Columbia Fire Department helped open the safe, where officers found the larger amount of cocaine.

Police also seized guns and surveillance equipment posted around the house.
A woman in the house was arrested on drug distribution charges. Three children inside the house were placed in the custody of relatives, Timmons said. Police have an arrest warrant for a man who also lived in the house.
