Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies handled several marijuana cases recently

In one case, deputies discovered that a man they arrested on pending warrants had more than 100 grams of marijuana in his vehicle. Deputies pulled the driver over for failing to use his turn signals twice. After contact with the driver, the responding deputy reported smelling marijuana in the vehicle. When both the driver and rear passenger got out of the car, the passenger admitted that he had marijuana in the vehicle. The deputy found about 110 grams of marijuana. Deputies arrested both the driver and the passenger for possession with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and within the vicinity of a school. Deputies also issued the driver a warning for failing to activate turn signal and a ticket for no proof of insurance.

Next, deputies handcuffed five people at a home on New Castle Lane in east Camden, while narcotics agents searched the home for drugs Friday. The agents found 198 grams of marijuana in the home, along with digital scales. Narcotics agents also noted that two children lived at the residence, although they weren’t home at the time. Deputies called the Department of Social Services to evaluate the living conditions of the home after finding mold and cockroaches in the bedrooms and kitchen, according to a KCSO incident report. A female and male resident were arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

Finally, as the C-I reported Sept. 25, deputies arrested a man out on bond on previous drug charges for failing to stop for a blue light, possession with intent to distribute marijuana and aggravated assault for striking the deputy’s patrol car. Deputies seized 7 ounces of marijuana, packaged for sale; a .40 cal. Glock handgun and approximately $2,200 cash.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Sept. 23-29:

A 70-year-old Ridgeway woman reported that a 62-year-old Winnsboro man stole approximately $3,000 in jewelry from her home while he was pretending to use the bathroom. The woman thought it was suspicious that the man had come to visit her for the second time in a matter of a few weeks. When the man said he had to leave immediately after he came from the back of the home, she went into her room and noticed that her jewelry box had been tampered with. The woman called the man’s sister and she convinced him to take the woman’s jewelry back. The Ridgeway woman said a diamond ring is still missing and told deputies that she wanted to press charges.

A man pretending to be a Kershaw County utility employee tried to collect $94 in utility bills and a “reconnect” bill of $64 from a Camden discount store. The store clerk told the man that they pay utilities through the city of Camden and the man left. The woman said the unknown man didn’t give a name and didn’t have a logo on his vehicle.

An intoxicated Camden man allegedly hit a woman and drove into a home on Old Rail Road north of Camden. Deputies located the man near Lockhart Road with the car having broken down. Deputies issued the man citations for public disorderly conduct and open container. It turned out he damaged his own home.

A woman reported that two men driving around in a black Nissan Sentra were trying to impersonate cops by using a siren. The car didn’t have any blue lights, but did have a siren that sounded similar to a police siren, she said.

A juvenile told her mother that her grandfather allegedly touched her inappropriately. The child’s older sister reportedly told her mother that she saw the incident happen.

Deputies issued a man a trespassing notice after he reportedly got angry and cussed at administrators at a Kershaw County School District elementary school.
