Three men were arrested in Bethune Saturday on drug charges after they were caught driving erratically and in the wrong lane by a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy.

According to a KCSO report, it was about 12:15 a.m. when Deputy Chuckie Baxley saw the white Chevy Caprice and activated his blue lights and siren at College and Walton streets. A short chase followed onto Ratcliff Street where Baxley saw the suspect car’s passenger front door open. The car continued about another 75 yards and then pulled over.

Baxley and another deputy directed the three suspects to exit the vehicle and patted them down for officer safety. The driver was identified as 18-year-old Keon Hough of Spring Street, Bethune. His passengers were identified as Isaac Demont Hough, 30, of Young Bridge Road, and Larry George Dunham, 28, of Poultry Lane, Gaston.

When asked why he didn’t stop for blue lights, Keon Hough said that he was scared. All three suspects were asked if there was anything illegal in the car and all three stated there was not. However, Isaac Hough provided Baxley with a small plastic bag that contained marijuana. An additional 21 small red bags and one clear plastic bag containing crack cocaine were found near the open front passenger door. More, unused plastic bags were found in the front seat.

The marijuana weighed .08 gram; the crack cocaine weighed 8.7 grams.

All three suspects were taken to the Kershaw County Detention Center where they were charged with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine. Isaac Hough was additionally charged with simple possession of marijuana.

Isaac and Keon Hough and Larry Dunham were still listed in custody at the county jail as of Monday afternoon.
