“This is another example of a useless criminal trying to poison our community with these drugs. As you can see from the charges, Mr. Strange didn’t learn his lesson the first time. We are working closely with the Solicitor’s office to see that he is punished accordingly this time. I want to make my message clear to these drug pushers out here. If you choose to sell this poison in Laurens County, we will relentlessly pursue you and we will seek the most aggressive prosecution the legal system has to offer” - Sheriff Don Reynolds, Laurens, South Carolina.
