GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Officials from Homeland Security Investigations are conducting a federal drug investigation at South Ridge Apartments in downtown Greenville, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Those apartments are on South Church St.
Investigators are working to test the drug they found at an apartment but those tests have not been completed so officials are not releasing the name of that drug.
Officials used hazmat suits out of caution because the drug they are looking for is an inhaled drug and could cause skin irritation issues for the responders, an ICE spokesperson says.
Officials say this is a customs operation due to items illegally crossing the border.
They say the investigation does not include a meth lab, and there is no threat to anyone in the area.
The investigation has been ongoing for some time, according to a spokesperson. Investigators were also at a home in Greer.
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the hazmat operation.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
