Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Arrests West Union Man on Trafficking in Methamphetamine Charge


Daniel Lloyd Stevens

(Walhalla, SC)-------------------------------------The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office arrested a West Union man recently on multiple charges, including a charge of Trafficking in Methamphetamine, after a pursuit last Friday evening.


35 year old Daniel Lloyd Stevens, of Ebenezer Road, was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center around 11:34pm last Friday, July 7th. At this time, Stevens remains in jail on a combined $121,800.00 surety bond. Stevens will be required to wear an electronic monitoring device, as a condition of bond, should he be released from jail.


A Deputy from the Uniform Patrol Bureau, on routine patrol in the area of Dickard Road and Bountyland Road, observed a vehicle that was speeding. The Deputy activated his blue lights and sirens as he attempted to catch up to the vehicle. The Deputy observed the vehicle disregard the stop sign at Bountyland Road at Poplar Springs Road.


The Deputy advised dispatch that he was in pursuit of the vehicle. As the pursuit continued, the Deputy observed the vehicle disregard the traffic light at the intersection of Richland Road at S. Highway 11 and then proceed onto S. Highway 11.


After passing vehicles on a double yellow line on S. Highway 11, the driver pulled into a business parking lot and the pursuit concluded in the back parking lot of the business. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Stevens, ran from the Deputy. Stevens eventually obeyed the Deputy’s commands and was taken into custody without incident.


During the course of the investigation, the Deputy discovered a quantity of Methamphetamine inside of a black container that was in Stevens’ possession. A search of the vehicle that Stevens was driving produced another container that contained a quantity of Heroin.


Paramedics were also called to the scene to evaluate Stevens due to complaints of leg pain unrelated to the pursuit. After Stevens was cleared by paramedics, Stevens was transported to jail and the vehicle Stevens was operating was towed away from the scene.


As a result of the investigation, approximately 22.9 grams of Methamphetamine and 1.06 grams of Heroin was seized.


In all, Stevens was charged with one count each of Trafficking in Methamphetamine, Possession of Heroin, Resisting Arrest, Failure to Stop for a Blue Light, Reckless Driving, Disregarding a Stop Sign, Failure to Obey a Traffic Control Device, Passing Unlawfully, Operating an Uninsured Motor Vehicle and Operating an Unregistered Vehicle.


Stevens was also served with two outstanding General Sessions Bench Warrants.
