Man Sentenced to 20 Years- Drug Ring Behind Bars

On October 16th, Kevin Matthew Bowlin of Rembert, SC pleaded guilty to a charge of trafficking meth and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

On May 22, 2019 Laurens County deputies performing a traffic stop on a vehicle discovered a large quantity of meth in addition to a quantity of “liquid” meth. After an extensive investigation, deputies discovered the drugs located were part of a meth ring being run by Kevin Bowlin from prison. Bowlin was found to have a contraband cell phone in Lieber Correctional Facility and contents of the phone linked Bowlin to the narcotics located in Laurens. Bowlin was serving an active sentence from a 2016 Greenwood robbery.

“This is another example of unreasonable activity occurring in prisons. Prisons are meant to be for punishment and are not halfway houses. I commend those who worked on this case for a job well done.”- Sheriff Don Reynolds
