Interim Lexington County Sheriff promotes four deputies

Interim Lexington County Sheriff Lewis McCarty promoted four deputies after clearing out the top Command at the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.

Interim Lexington County Sheriff Lewis McCarty promoted four deputies Wednesday in the wake of his firing four top deputies last week following the indictment of long-serving Lexington County Sheriff James Metts.

McCarty promoted Adam Creech, 29, of Irmo, to the major crimes division as an Investigator. Creech was a master deputy and served as a supervisor to the West Region Patrol District based in Gilbert. McCarty also promoted Thomas Fine, 47, of Lexington, and Cameron Sherban, 27, of Lexington, to serve in the Gilbert-based patrol district as master deputies.

Fine previously served as a field training officer in the West Region Patrol District, while Sherban served as a field training officer on a road patrol shift.

McCarty’s fourth promotion was Samuel Smith, 29, of Columbia, to serve as a master deputy in the South Region Patrol District, based in Pelion. Smith previously worked as a field training officer in that same region.
