The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) arrested a 21-year-old Sumter man on drug and weapons charges Friday.

According to a KCSO report, the suspect was seen driving without a seatbelt at Ehrenclou Drive and U.S. 521. A deputy stopped the vehicle and reported seeing numerous beer cans in the pickup’s bed. The driver reportedly told the deputy he had rifles in the truck and might have a gun under the front seat. He also said a small of marijuana was in the truck.

A search turned up 9 grams of marijuana, a marijuana grinder with residue inside and a fully-loaded handgun. The deputy arrested the man and issued citations for the seatbelt violation, marijuana and paraphernalia. The report said a warrant was obtained for the weapon.

The KCSO also reported the following other incident during the period of May 19-25:

Deputies arrested a 19-year-old Campobello man Friday after allegedly finding him in possession of 44 grams of marijuana. A KCSO report said the suspect was stopped on I-20 for speeding and a check of the vehicle’s license came back as stolen from Spartanburg County. A female passenger told deputies she owned the car and a former boyfriend had taken the license plate off the car. She claimed she reported it stolen but that the boyfriend returned it to her. The man and woman denied there was anything illegal in the car. However, as a KCSO K-9 officer checked the car, he reported he smelled marijuana even without his dog. He located a gym bag containing 44 grams of suspected marijuana and a marijuana grinder in the rear passenger area. The deputy also found an additional 5 grams inside a glass jar. The deputy charged the man with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute marijuana.

The KCSO also reported 11 more marijuana arrests over the weekend. They also investigated 10 thefts, made six arrests for driving under the influence and three for public disorderly conduct, had two cases each of open container, burglary, assault and trespassing and one report each for shoplifting, possession of crack cocaine, driving under suspension, failure to stop for blue lights, criminal domestic violence, harassment, minor in possession of alcohol, and driving without a license.


The Camden Police Department (CPD) reported a 16-year old student had a knife at the Continuous Learning Center on Friday. A CPD report said the youth told the school resource officer he had forgotten to take the knife out of his pants pocket before going to school. He reportedly gave the knife to another student who turned it in to the officer, the report said.

The CPD reported the following other incident during the period of May 19-25:

Dispatchers sent officers to a Church Street residence after a woman reported her car stolen. The CPD report said the woman told officers the car was unsecured, but the keys were not inside and she knew of no additional keys to the 1997 Honda Accord. The investigation found there is no lien holder for the vehicle, ruling out a repossession.

The CPD also reported three thefts, two assaults, two vandalisms  and one case each of shoplifting, assault, driving under suspension and driving without a license.
