Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) narcotics investigators seized more than $7,000 cash, just less than 1 kilogram of methamphetamine, 1 ounce of marijuana and a 2004 Mercedes Benz following a traffic stop on Pine Grove Road in Lugoff on May 17.

According to a KCSO press release, investigators arrested Anthony Scott Chosewood, 33, of Lithia Springs, Ga., and Jasmin Lenamay Dickover, 32, from Villa Rica, Ga., and charged both with trafficking 2.16 pounds of meth. Investigators also charged Chosewood with a second offense of marijuana possession.

In the press release, the KCSO said investigators had received information during more than a one-year period about drug trafficking at a home on Pine Grove Road. During that time, KCSO narcotics investigators conducted periodic surveillance of the home. On May 17, investigators observed the Mercedes Benz, with North Carolina tags, being driven by Chosewood, with Dickover in the front passenger seat as it left the Pine Grove Road residence.

Upon approaching the Mercedes during the traffic stop, one of the narcotics investigators smelled the aroma of marijuana. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed the methamphetamine in the trunk, the marijuana and $7,159 dollars in cash. Investigators placed Chosewood and Dickover under arrest and transported them to the Kershaw County Detention Center.

Although the KCSO’s press release indicated both Chosewood and Dickover were still at the county jail, as of Thursday afternoon, neither was listed on the jail’s website as being detained. Online Kershaw County Clerk of Court records show Chosewood’s charges, but no bond had been paid. Online records show Dickover’s meth trafficking charge, with no bond set for her.

KCSO narcotics investigators, one of whom is assigned to U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) task force, are working with DEA special agents in preparation of taking the case to federal court for prosecution.

Both Chosewood and Dickover have extensive criminal records in Georgia to include numerous narcotics violations and methamphetamine charges, according to the KCSO’s press release.
