The Horry County Police Department says it has made its largest seizure of heroin to date.
Detectives with the Horry County Police Department's Narcotics and Vice Section, along with Agents from the United States Drug Enforcement Agency in Florence, conducted a year long investigation of a drug trafficking organization bringing in large quantities of black tar heroin to the Grand Strand.
On August 2, officers seized the drugs from an address in the Arrowhead Subdivision in the Myrtle Beach area.
Police say they seized 8 kilograms of black tar heroin with an estimated street value of $10 million, 1 and 1/2 kilograms of powder heroin with an estimated street value of $2.2 million dollars, and 1/4 kilogram of cocaine with an estimated street value of $20,200.
This investigation is ongoing and the agencies expect to make arrests in the near future.
