SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies and the SWAT team arrested a man accused of selling drugs and having a large amount inside his home.

Deputies busted into 29-year-old David Hines' Anchor Street home Friday morning after an ongoing narcotics investigation.

Neighbors said they awoke to the sounds of loud booms, which deputies said came from "distraction devices" that woke the suspect up.

"Narcotics had made some previous drug buys there in the month of March and April, and that was enough for them to get search warrants," said Lt. Tony Ivey with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.

Warrants said deputies found more than 30 grams of cocaine, 13 grams of cocaine base and nearly half a gram of pot in the home.

Deputies said the home was trafficking drugs and the bust is part of a larger problem.

"We see an unusual number of more drug arrests in that area than maybe some other places within the county," Ivey said.

Deputies said they will continue to investigate and make arrests connected to illegal drug activity across the county.

Hines was charged with three outstanding drug charges and is being held on $75,000 bond.
