EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a two-month undercover investigation led to the arrest of an Easley man accused of selling meth as a part of several drug investigations.

On Thursday, Pickens County Sheriff's Office SWAT team responded to 116 Onyx Lane in Easley and two homes in Pickens following three separate investigations.

Deputies said during the investigation, deputies from the Special Operations Division conducted controlled purchases of methamphetamine from Kenneth Cartee, 36, and last week, they issued two arrest warrants for distribution of methamphetamine and searched his home.

Following the search, deputies also charged Cartee with trafficking between 10 and 28 grams of methamphetamine second offense and two charges of possession of controlled substances.

Meanwhile, deputies said a second investigation led to the arrest of brothers Jeremiah Holcombe and James Holcombe, each of 426 Pine View Drive in Pickens.

Jeremiah Holcombe was charged with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine first offense while his brother was charged with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine third offense. Jeremiah Holcombe has been released from jail on bond.

A fourth man was arrested a result of the third investigation. Deputies said John Hendricks, 36, of 322 Flint Hill Drive in Pickens, was charged with two counts of distribution of methamphetamine second offense.

Hendricks, James Holcombe and Cartee are all being held at the Pickens County Detention Center on bond.
