A pair of search warrants resulted in nine drug-related arrests in Aiken's Shiloh Heights area late Friday, according to officials.

The warrants were obtained after an investigation lead to several controlled purchases of crack cocaine that were made at the two locations simultaneously, deputies said.

Alonzo Strom, 47, of Aiken, was arrested for active arrest warrant for probation and parole.
Pamela Thomas, 44, of Aiken, was arrested on a family court bench warrant and three counts of unlawful possession of prescription medicines.
The arrests might not be the last related to the investigation, according to Sgt. Jason Feemster of Aiken County Sheriff's Office.
“More arrests are still pending based on the investigation,” Feemster said.
The S.C. Department of Social Services also responded and placed two children that were in one of the homes in the care of family members, according to the report.
Also seized in the operation were a firearm, several grams of cocaine, marijuana, controlled prescription pills and more than $6,000
