HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two men were sentenced on trafficking in cocaine base charges this week in Horry County, according to officials with the 15th Circuit Solicitor's Office.

James Earl Gregg, 29, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for trafficking in cocaine base, 28-100 grams, second offense, and 32-year-old Anthony McCleod was sentenced to seven years for a first offense.

Both defendants will have to serve 85 percent of their sentence, as this offense is classified as violence and serious, according a news release from the solicitor's office.

Gregg and McCleod were arrested after an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Unit in April 2012.
