MARION COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The FBI investigative activity in Marion County Wednesday was connected to federal indictments on drug-related charges of 16 people, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

The indictment attributes varying amounts of cocaine and/or heroin to each person.

According to a press release from U.S. Attorney Beth Drake, Santerrio Smith, Dantrell Smith, Dunlap and Fuller have been named in the indictment, but not yet arrested. The other 12 defendants appeared in court Thursday and entered not guilty pleas.
