Eleven Arrested in Drug Operation

Several people were arrested in the Low Country last night, and some cocaine is off the streets in a big operation covering Jasper and Beaufort Counties.

Officers from federal and state agencies raided 11 houses and seized more than half a pound of cocaine, $100,000 in cash, six vehicles.

They arrested 11 people. They're charging seven with drug trafficking, and several are illegal aliens.

There may be more arrests in the case.
