Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) narcotics investigators arrested a Camden man July 31, charging him with trafficking in cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, manufacturing marijuana, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime.

A KCSO press release said Jonnifer Oneal Halley, 33, a resident of Red Hill Road was taken into custody after investigators received an anonymous tip of marijuana plants in the home’s back yard. The release said the plants were found and deputies questioned Halley about the plants and about marijuana they smelled when he opened the door to his residence. When deputies asked Halley if he had weapons, he tried to flee but was apprehended following a brief struggle.

Deputies secured the residence and obtained a search warrant. During the subsequent search they located about a half-ounce of cocaine, one-third ounce of crack cocaine, four handguns, three marijuana plants, a small quantity of marijuana and suspected stolen property.

Deputies took Halley to the Kershaw County Detention Center where he was later released on $112,000 bond, the press release said. Halley has previous arrests for numerous narcotics charges and has a conviction for trafficking cocaine. Additional charges may be pending.
