Laurens County deputies said two people were arrested after a standoff Sunday.

It happened at a house on Relax Street in Waterloo.

Deputies said the wanted suspect, Kristopher Damian Burton, 37 locked himself in a bedroom once he saw law enforcement outside.

Deputies said they spoke with Burton through the bedroom door and he surrendered.

Deputies also found a woman, Kerrie Rena Wilson, 39, hiding under clothes in the closet.

Wilson and Burton were charged with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of steroids.  Burton was also charged with unlawful possession of a weapon after deputies found a gun in the home.

Burton was transported to the Greenwood County Detention Center to answer for the original SCHP warrant and Wilson was hauled to the Laurens County Detention Center.

 “It absolutely pleases me to see the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office working so well with other agencies and bringing about change where it’s needed,” Laurens County Sheriff Don Reynolds said in a news release. “When law enforcement works together the community observes those changes as well.”
