Lexington County narcotic agents arrest man on trafficking and distribution of narcotics

Lexington, SC 10/06/2022 (Paul Kirby) – Narcotic agents with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Lexington man last month that has been accused of trafficking meth, cocaine, and distributing fentanyl.


According to the Sheriff’s Department, Nehemiah Jimmy Mayes, 28, is now charged with two counts of trafficking meth, trafficking cocaine base, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute a Schedule II narcotic, according to warrants obtained by the narcotic agents.

According to Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon, agents arranged multiple controlled purchases of meth from Mayes. Sheriff Koon went on to say, “Those buys led to multiple search warrants at different locations as part of our work on the case.”


Community tips helped agents find Mayes according to Sheriff Koon.


“Agents seized a large quantity of drugs and more that $16,000 in cash from locations associated with Mayes,” Sheriff Koon said. “They also seized two vehicles that were connected to his drug enterprise. We are glad to get these drugs off the street, which will likely save lives and limit Mayes’ ability to profit off the lives of people in our community.”
