Three arrested on drugs, weapons charges

LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County narcotics agents arrested two men and one woman this week after executing a search warrant at a Lexington home.

Michelle Eisinger, 42, is charged with possessing and trafficking illegal drugs. Jason Rivers Jr., 30, is charged with illegally possessing a firearm and failing to register as a sex offender. Kevin Vinson Jr., 36, is charged with illegally possessing drugs and a firearm.

“Investigators were at a home on Blueberry Drive Monday serving an outstanding arrest warrant when they spotted Vinson inside a vehicle with illegal narcotics in plain view,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “They eventually located a weapon in the vehicle then executed a search warrant of the house and found more drugs and weapons.”

Deputies found Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, marijuana, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and a handgun inside the home during the search, according to Koon.

“This house contained a lot of drugs that could have also been distributed to more people if our deputies hadn’t intervened,” Koon said. “We’re glad to get these drugs off the streets.”

Eisinger and Rivers are being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Vinson has been released after posting bail.
