Two arrested in York undercover meth bust


Two people are facing drug charges after an undercover investigation by the York County Multi-jurisdictional Drug Unit.

Michael Dwaine Dover, 24, of York is facing two charges of distribution of methamphetamine and two counts of distribution within proximity of a public park. Tonya Nicole Davis, 35, of Rock Hill was also arrested and charged with possession of one gram or less of methamphetamine, according to the York County Detention Center.

Dover was the target of an undercover investigation by the drug unit, who suspected him of distributing methamphetamine from his residence on Railroad Avenue.

“We made some controlled purchases with an undercover informant, and based on that received a warrant,” said Lt. Mike Ligon with the drug unit.

Officers served the warrant and arrested Dover on Tuesday, during which time they took custody of a 10th of a gram of meth as well as scales and other drug paraphernalia at the home, Ligon said.

The two sets of charges Dover faces result from the drug sale of an undisclosed amount of meth, and the drugs uncovered at the time of his arrest. Dover’s home is within close proximity of McCelvey Park.

Davis was also at the home at the time the drug unit served the warrant, and was found to have meth in her possession, Ligon said.

Bond for both was denied for both, according to the detention center’s website.
