Grandmother, grandson arrested for drug crimes, other charges

A South Carolina woman and her adult grandson are facing criminal charges after reportedly being found with marijuana and counterfeit goods on Feb. 17. The pair will face drug-related charges for allegedly possessing 4.6 ounces of pot. In addition, the two defendants are accused of participating in a counterfeit clothing sales operation. They were reportedly found with several bags of brand-name merchandise that are likely knock-offs of the original design. Those brand names included Polo and Nike.

Authorities report that a police officer pulled the pair over on Interstate 85 because he suspected that her passenger windows were tinted darker than regulations allow. When the officer got out of the vehicle, he said he smelled marijuana wafting from the vicinity. The two defendants reportedly denied having any pot in the vehicle, but the grandson was allegedly seen dropping a small bag on the side of the road. Testing identified the substance in that bag as marijuana. Further, a significant amount of marijuana was allegedly found inside a shoebox that was included with the counterfeit merchandise.

The woman in the case claims that she often travels to Atlanta to purchase items for her business. She shops at the Greenbriar Flea Market in that city. The woman admitted that she suspected that the clothing was counterfeit, but she paid $400 for the lot, anyway. If the items were truly brand-name, they would be worth an estimated $4,500, according to officers.

Criminal defendants, such as this pair of South Carolina residents, may face a drug charges in combination with other allegations. This may seem like a daunting situation, but defendants may be able to seek help from a South Carolina criminal defense attorney. Defendants accused of a drug crime in conjunction with other charges deserve a legal advocate to promote their rights in court.
