Deputies with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office arrived at the scene of a domestic incident, but left with two people arrested on active arrest warrants for drug charges, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.
On May 14, 911 communications center dispatched deputies to Moon Road in Washington — shortly thereafter, it was discovered that the resident of the house and a neighbor next door had charges pending for an undercover operation by the sheriff’s office drug unit, said the release.
Christopher Michael Hudson, 24, of 70 Moon Road, and Nancy Rifest Keyes, 42, of 30 Moon Road, were arrested on charges stemming from a series of controlled buys of opiate-based prescription pain medication.
“The investigation dates back two months,” said a spokesman for the drug unit. “We did controlled buys from Chris and Nancy and they both assisted one another in selling the morphine. Another buy we did was just with Chris: morphine and lorazepam.”
Christopher Hudson was charged with Possession with Intent to sell and deliver Schedule II Controlled Substance, Conspiracy to Sell and Deliver Schedule II Controlled Substance, and Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver Schedule IV Controlled Substance. Hudson was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $15,000 secured bond. Nancy Keyes was charged with Possession with Intent to Sell and Deliver Schedule II Controlled Substance and Conspiracy to Sell and Deliver Schedule II Controlled Substance. Keyes was confined in the Beaufort County Detention Center under a $10,000 secured bond.
