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.

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.
