3 arrested in Aiken drug bust

Three Aiken residents were arrested following a drug bust Tuesday afternoon, according to Aiken Public Safety Capt. Wendell Hall.

The bust was the culmination of a narcotics investigation that began in April.

Authorities seized $9,600 in cash, a vehicle and "a good bit of cocaine and marijuana," Hall said. Exact amount of the recovered drugs was unavailable.

Edward DeFelice, 26, was charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute within a half mile of a school.
