MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Six people have been arrested in connection with a slew of drug charges, including drug trafficking, according to Myrtle Beach police.

Richard Smith, 35, of Myrtle Beach; Renee Carroll, 34, of Myrtle Beach; Jessica Sekelsky, 26, of Myrtle Beach; Lawrence Richard, 33, of Myrtle Beach; Destiny Brown, 23, of Texas; and Thomas Rivera, 33, of Texas, were arrested by Myrtle Beach police and taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center following the arrests.

In a report, police said heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamines, alprazolam, marijuana were found following executed searches in the mobile home, a room at the Polynesian motel and a car.

In addition, police said thousands of dollars, multiple baggies, multiple scales, and two guns were taken. The items collected by police were taken due to being "consistent with street level drug sales," the report states.

Police said, "There is probable cause to believe that all offenders are in possession of all the narcotics and guns located in the residence."
