South Carolina man arrested on drug crime charges

A South Carolina man from Fort Mill was recently taken into custody by Rock Hill police officers. The 23-year-old man was arrested on multiple drug charges after he was pulled over for allegedly failing to use his turn signal.

Police say that they pulled the man over and asked him to produce his driver's license. Upon reviewing the identification, authorities say they discovered it was suspended. Police claim that they later found a clear plastic baggie filled with approximately 11.7 grams of marijuana. They also say they found hydrocodone pills and a digital scale -- all of these items were allegedly found in the man's vehicle.

Police allege that they coaxed the man into confessing that he bought the controlled substances just prior to his arrest and that he had recently ingested one of his Hydrocodone pills. Upon review of the man's criminal record, he had two previous marijuana possession convictions on his history. Authorities booked him on the specific charges of possession of marijuana (third offense), hydrocodone possession and driving with a suspended license.

Although authorities say that they have obtained a confession from this man, it is unknown whether the alleged confession will hold up as evidence in court. When South Carolina resident is accused of confessing to a drug crime, specific laws apply to the way that confession was obtained by authorities. Also, in some cases where an individual is charged with multiple offenses, he or she may be able to get some or even all of those charges dismissed in court through the successful navigation of his or her criminal court proceedings.
