Pee Dee pair faces drug trafficking charges after arrest at a Florence motel

Florence, South Carolina – Two people from the Pee Dee area have been arrested in Florence on drug-related charges as part of a major crackdown on drug trafficking. Jessica Renee Glass, 36, of Florence and Dalton Lynn Gainey, 25, of Hartsville were arrested as a part of the operation on Tuesday. This was a major turning point in an undercover operation that the Florence County Sheriff’s Office had been running for a month.

On Tuesday, the operation finally came to an end when police carried out a search warrant at a motel at 3783 West Palmetto Street. Since the reports of illegal drug activity initially came in, this place became the focus of the probe. This is where Dalton Lynn Gainey was reportedly engaged in the sale of methamphetamine to a confidential informant over several weeks, between January 25 and March 7. Also, Jessica Renee Glass is accused of selling fentanyl to a confidential informant on the property this past Monday.

Police searched the motel and found methamphetamine and a large enough amount of fentanyl to press trafficking charges. These results support the accusations against Glass and Gainey even more and show how deeply they were involved in the drug trade. Glass is now facing several charges, including possession of methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, and trafficking fentanyl. Meanwhile, Gainey has been charged with the distribution of methamphetamine, underscoring his role in the operation.

According to the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, these arrests are the result of an extensive investigation. As the investigation goes on, the police haven’t ruled out possibility of more charges or arrests. Glass and Gainey are both being held at the Florence County Detention Center until their cases are heard again.

This case is another warning of how hard it is for communities to fight drug-related crimes and how important it is to keep working to keep everyone safe.

The Florence County Sheriff’s Office has said again that it will follow up on all tips and work nonstop to stop illegal drug activities in the area.
