Gun, drug raid brings 3 arrests

  • Follow Metro

AIKEN - Aiken police have ended a three-month investigation, nabbing three people - including a mother and her son - on a number of drug and gun charges.

Late last week, local and federal agents searched a home in the 400 block of Chime Bell Church Road, finding drugs, eight firearms and $500.

Lt. Michael Frank, the Aiken County sheriff's spokesman, said the arrests "originated from nothing more than a citizen's complaint. Over the course of several months' investigation, we made undercover drug buys to bolster our case."

Arrested Friday were:

- Robert L. Dunbar, 48, charged with possession of a sawed-off shotgun, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession of a schedule II controlled substance and possession of crack cocaine. Mr. Dunbar is accused of having diazepam and oxycodone.

- Audrey V. Miles, 35, charged with possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession of crack cocaine second offense and possession of marijuana more than first offense. She is accused of having alprazolam.

- Daniel F. Miles, 18, charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Investigators from the Aiken County Sheriff's Office, the Aiken Department of Public Safety and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives raided the home shared by the three Friday.

Mr. Dunbar and Ms. Miles are free on bond from the Aiken County Detention Center. Mr. Miles was ticketed, Lt. Frank said.

president bush says the war

president bush says the war is can be won.

President bush, vice presdent chaney, secretary of state, rice and all the congress and senators should get all suited up, prepared for war. load up on air force one and go to Iraq and show the american people how to win this war and stop killing innocent soldiers.

i am surprised aiken sheriffs

i am surprised aiken sheriffs department actually did an investigation. they usually just arrest people without an investigation. even after the charges are dismissed by one judge the sheriffs department starts it all over again. even though no drugs were found you still get harrassed. if an investigation had been done they would have seen they were on the wrong track. two young adults have died due to drugs and aiken county would rather spend their time and energy on an innocent man than save the lives of these other people. beth ann and mike hunt are desperate.

I truely have to say that I

I truely have to say that I have learned something today. I would have never have thought that someone as ignorant as Concerned Aikenite actually is able to read a paper much less use a computer. I am sure that when you stand trial for the case that you speak of, the Sheriff's Department will show you really how much of an investigation that they did and the real concerned citizens of this county on the jury will give you free room and board at one of our gracious detention centers.

Weekapaug is right. The same

Weekapaug is right. The same thing goes for the war in Iraq. Everyone needs to run for the hills - pull out and let the religious zeolots whack themselves. You can't reason with a deluded idiot. As for dopers - if drugs were legalized it wouldn't be long for them either. Maybe they can set up booths in a pasture somewhere, kind of like a "farmer's market. Even have a few tents set up (sort of like a coffee house) where the druggies can get all crackfaced and croak right there. They could have a crack tent, a weed tent, an ecstasy tent, a meth tent, etc. Hey, might even be a good business to offer the neighboring pastureland to a funeral home. Fine, FINE business opportunity for them too! What an assembly line of profit!

ooo I got it...isn't the contaminated property on Reynolds Street still up for grabs? Quick - somebody...call the developer, Mr. Kitchens!! He can take 30% of the drug dealers earnings if they set up shop there! No worries about clean up costs either - dopers could care less about a little bit of lead in the ground. Well....unless you can get high from lead. Wouldn't that be a sight! Druggies sucking dirt. Hee hee - our own Augusta Hoovers.

i have never taken dope in my

i have never taken dope in my life and i don't plan on it. I am a Christian that feels sorry for families whose children are dying because aiken county spends more time trying to "win a lost cause" than protecting those that are true "dopers". there are a lot of young adults that need help and they are not getting it

to thebutterfly1-I am not

to thebutterfly1-I am not even the one on trial so you don't even know what you are talking about. He DID stand trial and all the charges were dismissed, but as an attorney said that judge was an idiot. there wasn't an investigationa done AND NO drugs were found when an illegal search was done. that is what a mad wife can do to a man in SC.

i am not saying that there

i am not saying that there aren't plenty of people that are guilty. i am saying that if the only "so called facts they have is "someone says", then they need to do research before they ruin someones life. just like those of you who automatically assume that because the police say so, it is so. that is not always the case. don't be so quick to judge. it could happen to you. read the law about how men are discriminated against when it comes to cdc!

if they were actually in

if they were actually in possession of the drugs then they should be charged..having 500 dollars is irrelevant though because thats not really substantial money...for the record marijuana is STILL NOT A DRUG it was once LEGAL and was only made ILLEGAL BECAUSE OF RACISM..and this is not just opinion my statement is based on facts
