Police Bust Drug Trafficker, Land On Something Big

South Carolina man, Brent Nicholson, was arrested for drug trafficking and was also found to have up to 10,000 stolen guns in his home and in several trailers. Sheriff Jay Brooks of Chesterfield County said, “None of us have ever seen anything anywhere close to this."

More than 100 law enforcement officials raided the home of Brent Nicholson off Highway 9 outside the small town of Pageland on Oct. 23.

Authorities were there for around two days. They now have to search each gun individually to find the rightful owners. Brooks went on to say “There were so many guns we quit counting after a while." Nicholson was arrested and charged with trafficking heroin and opium in Union County recently.

Deputies reportedly went to serve him with a subpoena on Oct. 23 when they spotted stolen goods. It was that night when the raid began. The raid is part of an ongoing investigation that involves multiple jurisdictions that could possibly have ties to several counties in North Carolina as well.

Nicholson’s neighbor, Rusty Fender, said “He’s always been a good cat, but you know, people do things. What was you thinking? Why was you collecting that many firearms? What was you planning on doing with them? I mean was you planning on starting a riot?”

There was no evidence that the guns were being used or sold. Brooks said Nicholson “looks like a gun hoarder.” Brooks said Nicholson also has a “menagerie” of stolen items, including 150 chainsaws, four-wheelers and taxidermy supplies. Warrants are also out for Nicholson’s father’s home, the family's liquor store and a farm he owned.
