      Horry County police find 153 pounds of pot

      Horry County police arrested Jacob Colby Phillips, 24, of Charleston for a marijuana bust. Charges are pending.

      They started an investigation two weeks ago when the Narcotics and Vice section got information on illegal drug activity.

      The investigation led them to a storage unit at 2787 Highway 501 near Conway.

      Detectives found Phillips at the storage unit Wednesday.

      They seized 153 pounds of marijuana with an approximate street value of $500,000.

      Detectives also seized a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado.

      Phillips is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
