A Timmonsville man has been arrested on drug violations after he fled a traffic stop July 10, according to the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Tony Chavis said Quinn D. Dixon, 41, of Timmonsville, ran from his vehicle on Wilson Street in Darlington and was arrested after a brief foot pursuit.
“Inside the vehicle, deputies found heroin, meth, marijuana and around $2,000 in cash,” Chavis said. “We remain vigilant and use every available resource to find and arrest those out there pushing these drugs in our community.”
