PELL CITY — A South Carolina man was arrested in St. Clair County on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021, on suspicion of drug trafficking.
Deputies with the sheriff’s office made a traffic stop around 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Upon a search of the vehicle, the sheriff’s office said 32 individually wrapped THC edibles, approximately six pounds of marijuana and approximately a pound of THC wax were found.
At first glance, the edibles appear to be cookies and chips, but the disguised bags actually say “Trips Ahoy!” or use other similar plays on popular brands.
Seth M. Partin, 27, of Lexington, SC, was arrested for trafficking. He was placed in the St. Clair County Jail in Ashville where he was awaiting an appearance before a judge.
Partin is considered innocent unless proven guilty.
