Two men have been charged in connection with a narcotics transaction that occurred on school grounds.
Tyran Veal (DOB: 10-2-1990) was arrested last night and charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana and Possession with Intent to Distribute in Close Proximity to a School. Today in court, a judge set Veal’s surety bond at $10,000. At last check, Veal was still detained at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
Isaiah Burns (DOB:12-16-1997) was also arrested yesterday and charged with Grand Larceny and Possession of a Firearm by Person Convicted of a Violent Felony. A judge set Burns bond at $50,000 and placed a detainer hold from the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services (PPP).
The pair was allegedly involved in a drug transaction at approximately 4:30 p.m. behind 111 Garden Drive on September 11, 2019. Veal is accused of possessing 60 grams of marijuana and trying to sell the drug to Burns. Officers initially responded to the incident location after Veal reported being robbed at gunpoint.
Burns is accused of taking Veal’s firearm, drugs and approximately $2,100 in cash during the prearranged meeting. Burns is prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a 2018 conviction from a Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature. Burns is also housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC).
CPD officers seized the property as evidence.
All persons arrested/charged are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
