Woman accused of selling meth in Orangeburg County


Orangeburg County

Sheriff’s Office

A 34-year-old woman is accused of selling methamphetamine in Orangeburg County.

Carla Powell, whose address is listed as Winnsboro, is charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, first offense.

She was taken into custody during a routine patrol of the Tyler Road and Saxon Drive area in Orangeburg County, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

Powell was stopped when officers noted the license tag of the vehicle she was driving was suspended.

A search of the maroon Toyota Scion revealed a small black safe on the passenger seat filled with straws, a black scale, several needles and a clear container with a clear-rock like substance which the subject identified as ice, the report states.

The substance was individually packaged in six clear baggies.

Powell allegedly admitted to law enforcement that she was selling narcotics for $50 a gram. About nine grams of the substance was found, according to an arrest warrant.

Powell was also issued a warning for the suspended tag, the report said.
