6 arrested on drug charges after home search, traffic stop

Lexington County narcotics agents have arrested six people on drug charges after tracking two wanted subjects to a home in Lexington.
Deputies responded to the 100 block of Browning Court Friday after receiving tips about a woman wanted for a parole violation and a man wanted on a family court bench warrant selling drugs out of a house.
“Investigators found the accused parole violator, 36-year-old Genie Buckner, at the Browning Court house.” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “She is charged with the parole violation.”
3 more people were arrested at the house, according to Koon.
Sarah Ann Buckner, 41, is charged with possession with intent to distribute meth, according to arrest warrants. Mandy Lachell Cooper, 41, is charged with possession of meth. Zack Lloyd Evans, 41, is charged with trafficking meth and possessing a weapon during a violent crime.
“While narcotics agents were executing a search warrant at the Browning Court home, deputies encountered the man originally wanted on a bench warrant, 42-year-old Brandon Scott Spires, after a traffic stop near the house,” Koon said. “He was found to be in possession of more than 550 grams of meth.”
Koon said Lea Marie McCormick, 45, was in the car with Spires at the time of the traffic stop. She was arrested and charged with possession of less than 1 gram of meth, according to an arrest warrant.
Spires and Genie Buckner are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Sarah Buckner, Cooper, Evans and McCormick have been released after posting bail.
