Police: Irish Travelers arrested for dealing prescription drugs

Johnny Jones

Darlington County deputies arrested two men for dealing prescription drugs.

Deputies charged Ezzie Harrison and Johnny Jones, both of Georgia, with distribution of a scheduled substance.

Officers tell us the men tried to buy Oxycontin from an undercover agent, but when they didn't have enough money, they offered to trade another drug.

Deputies say the men admitted to being Irish Travelers or gypsies and are under investigation for scams in the county.
