Trafficking charges for Washington man

Published 8:25pm Saturday, May 4, 2013

A Washington man was arrested Thursday and charged with trafficking in opiates, according to a press release from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Drug Unit.
James Deverone Sadler, 32, of Camel Drive, Washington, was served arrests warrants by deputies after drug unit investigators conducted two separate controlled buys of prescription pain medication from Sadler, according to a spokesman for the drug unit.
“It’s just another example of how much need there is — of the supply and demand of prescription pain pills,” the spokesman said.
Sadler was charged with four counts of trafficking in opiates and two counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver schedule IV controlled substance. He was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond.
