16 Kilos Of Coke Seized In Greenville

A traffic stop Sunday night landed two men in jail and the seizure of 16 kilos of powder cocaine.

Greenville police say the cocaine is worth $1.6 million.

Police and sheriff deputies stopped a silver Ford pickup truck and a green Ford escort for traffic violations at the intersection of Highway 264 and Highway 33 in Greenville.

Sherman Chambers and Clyde Lotharp, both of Marshville in Uniion County, were charged with several counts of trafficking over 400 grams of cocaine and conspiracy to traffic cocaine. The two men are being held under $1 million bonds.

    Good for GPD!!! Snitches or not. Drugs are off the streets.

    There wasn't a road block. There were state troopers who made that stop. I went through the stop myself. Definitly somebody had to snitch because they didn't even look at my ID. No respect for the snitches even though the drugs are off the street.

      You say no respect for the snitches. What if that snitch never said anything and it ended up right in your child's hand? Then you would have wished someone would have spoken up. Snitch or no snitch, Good job GPD. Greenville needs some serious cleaning up.

        I say again. GPD didn't make the stop. And for every 16 kilos that didn't make it in there were every other type of drug that drove right past. If law enforcement would do their job and stop waiting on someone to tell them who did what, drugs wouldn't be so plentiful.

          who cares? who cares who made the stop? im just happy the stuff is off the streets. maybe you should join law enforcement since you know how they should do their job? (smh) i say, you were on the way to pick you up some and the police had it in custody! dont understand why else you would be such a jerk about it.

        if it ends up in your child's hands then someone need to snitch on you to dss. sweep around your own and stop worrying about what other people are doing it aint your business.

    Come on guys and gals. They were stopped for a traffic violation. And to all you Dick Tracys out there, what do you want? The police to publish the entire case file right here on WITN so you know "why" they were "really" stopped and who the "snitch" was. The police are releasing what they can at this point in the investigation to the media. Just be happy those kilos didn't hit the streets of Greenville and show the cops a little respect for doing a job well done.Bravo Zulu GPD!
