During the raid, undercover agents conducted reverse buys and arrested five others.  Dorothy Amerson, 50, of Darlington, Teddy Wayne Davis, 53, of Florence, Stanly Jason Bailey, 37, of Darlington, Joan Davis, 52, of Florence, and Darrell Grady, 46, of Darlington, were all charged with attempt to purchase a controlled substance.
