Traffic stop leads to drug charges

May 10, 2013

An early morning traffic stop in Westminster has sent two men to jail charged with multiple drug offenses. According to assistant chief Rory Jones, a driving offense alerted an officer to a vehicle on E. Main Street at 1 o’clock Thursday morning. And Jones credits an officer’s K-9 with sniffing out what the police say was a mobile methamphetamine lab in the vehicle. Law enforcement records show Joshua Fred Anderson 33-year old Fair Play, resident charged with manufacture, distribution of meth first offense. Aaron Lionel Burdette, 32-year old Westminster resident, charged with manufacture, distribution of meth first offense, two other drug offenses, and two traffic offenses. Jones says his department relied on the Oconee Sheriff’s Department to dissemble the lab and its disposal.
