PICKENS COUNTY, SC (WYFF/WIS) - A drug investigation lasting more than six months in Pickens County led to 19 people arrested, many whom investigators say are Clemson students.

Investigators seized more than $6,300 in cash and  nearly 300 grams of high grade marijuana, with a street value of more than $5,000.  They also seized dozens of weapons and a machine used to make fake ID's.

More than 60 warrants were served.

"What it will do, I hope, is prevent some future incidents from happening where people are dealing drugs and bad things are going to happen," said Pickens County Assistant Sheriff Tim Morgan.

"So it gets some folks off the street some of the dealing will stop from these people and maybe some other folks will take heed and wise up."

Deputies are still searching for four more suspects.
