Two Bluffton residents face numerous drug-related charges as part of a year-long investigation into the sale and distribution of fentanyl and methamphetamine in southern Beaufort County.

Robert Brandon Timblin, 33, was charged June 25 with trafficking in methamphetamine, trafficking in fentanyl, two counts of distribution of methamphetamine, first offense, possession of a firearm or ammunition by a person convicted of a violent crime and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Ellen Danielle Alberg, 24, was charged June 25 with three counts of distribution of methamphetamine, first offense, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and distribution of methamphetamine near a school. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office said Timblin and Alberg remained in custody June 26 at the Beaufort County Detention Center and additional charges could be filed in the case.

The arrests were made following the execution of a search warrant at a Bluffton home by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office Violent Crimes Task Force.
