Lexington County narcotics agents arrested a man on multiple charges last week after an undercover operation.

Ladarien Quentaro Gates, 29, faces five heroin distribution charges and one count each of trafficking heroin and possession of a narcotic, according to arrest warrants.

“Gates was arrested as part of an ongoing undercover operation that began in December,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. “Agents executed a search warrant at his home last week in the 200 block of Shirway Court.”

Agents seized pills, heroin, used needles and more than $500 from Gates’ home, according to Koon.

Gates was arrested Thursday at his home. He’s since been released from the Lexington County Detention Center after meeting the conditions of his bond.
