02/22/2022 - Fentanyl Investigation leads to multiple arrests

In the summer of 2021, the Spartanburg County Narcotics Unit began an investigation into a fentanyl distribution ring operating on the east side of Spartanburg through complaints and overdose investigations. During the investigation, it was determined that Zykorrian Davis was a main supplier of fentanyl in Spartanburg. Investigators were able to link Eli Roberts and Jayden Herr, who also distributed fentanyl to people in and around the east side of Spartanburg. Investigators were able to obtain enough evidence to execute a search warrant on 2-21-22 at 404 Lake Forest Drive, Spartanburg, SC, which is the residence of Eli Roberts, Amanda Jo Knox and three children. Investigators determined that Zykorrian Davis and his girlfriend, Rachel Day, also lived at the residence. During the search of the residence, investigators located a quantity of fentanyl, a 9mm pistol, a semi-automatic shotgun, a rifle, and an AR-15 rifle. The three children was also placed into Emergency Protective Custody from the residence due to living conditions in the home. The following charges were made from the course of this investigation:
