Lexington County, SC (WLTX) - Lexington County deputies have arrested a man they say tried to give cocaine to an informant working with police.

Charles Alton Morehouse, 37, is charged with distribution of cocaine.

Drug officers started their investigation after the informant told them that he knew someone who dealt the drug. Eventually, deputies determined it was Morehouse.

On November 2, officers say Morehouse distributed the drug to the informant.

Sheriff James Metts says Morehouse is the husband of his administrative assistant. While he says there's no evidence she knew about any drug deals, she has been placed on administrative leave with pay.
