Horry County police found an estimated $12 million worth of heroin and other drugs in the Myrtle Beach area in what the police department is calling its largest seizure of the drug to date.

The drugs were found recently after an investigation led police to a home in the Arrowhead subdivision in the Myrtle Beach section of the county. Sgt. Robert Kegler, spokesman for the Horry County Police Department, did not report that anyone was arrested at the time of the seizure.

Kegler said detectives with the Horry County Police Department's narcotics and vice section and agents from the U.S Drug Enforcement Agency in Florence worked together on the drug case, which resulted in officers finding heroin and cocaine. The seizure that occurred on Aug. 2 resulted from a yearlong investigation into "large quantities of black tar heroin to the Grand Strand," according to a press release from Kegler.
