Arrowhead adds security after drug bust

Myrtle Beach, SC -

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Arrowhead subdivision in Myrtle Beach has added security on the heels of being the scene of the largest drug bust in Horry County history.

According to Excalibur Security and Investigations, the company was in talks to patrol the community before the bust, but the situation did act as a catalyst to the protection.

Mike Arrington, president of Excalibur, says his company's security presence is meant to keep criminals away from the community.

"It's just a visibility of a security presence in the neighborhood to keep people that are up to no good away from that neighborhood," he said.

Arrington says his people are not only patrolling for security-related purposes, but also to enforce homeowner's association standards.

No matter the reason, some residents are feeling a bit safer now that there is a security presence.

"Yeah, it was a shock, but you know with the extra security and I'm sure they're going to have a lot of police officers on staff now patrolling the neighborhood more often," said Archie Lambert, who lives in the area of a recent $12 million drug bust. "It makes me feel much safer."

Lambert says although having a major drug bust happen in his neighborhood is frightening, he won't let it ruin the neighborhood.

"We're here. I mean, you know we're not going to let any drug dealers come in and just set up camp some place and run us out of our home," he said. "Absolutely not."

Horry County Police have still not made any arrests in the case, although they say they expect to do so soon.
