COLUMBIA, SC - Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott announces the arrest of a man accused of making methamphetamine inside his parent’s home.

Jerry Ward Galloway (DOB: 9-28-1976) is charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, Manufacturing Methamphetamine, and Possession of Marijuana.

Members of CPD’s Drug Suppression Team (DST) received a tip about possible drug activity at a home on Lincoln Street.

Officers received written consent to search 3012 Lincoln Street and found methamphetamine making materials, and marijuana in plain view.

Officers also uncovered a substance that field tested positive for ‘cooked’ meth inside a trash can in the backyard.

Methamphetamine in its powder form was found in a plastic bag on Galloway’s person.

Galloway was arrested on site and later transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) assisted CPD with this investigation.

A private contractor cleaned up the residence.

All persons charged/arrested are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
