Sheriff’s deputies find guns and drugs, arrest 2
A Hartsville man and a Lamar man were being held on drug charges after a traffic stop outside Hartsville last week.
Kaleb David Felkel, 19, of Hartsville and Cameron Ray Dennett, 19, of Lamar were arrested. Felkel is charged with trafficking cocaine, five counts of possession with intent to distribute a schedule II narcotic, possession with intent to distribute, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and simple possession of marijuana.
Dennett is charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of meth, four counts of possession with intent to distribute a schedule II narcotic and simple possession of marijuana, second offense.
According to Darlington County Sheriff Tony Chavis, deputies stopped a vehicle at the intersection of New Market Road and W. Old Camden Road for a traffic violation last Wednesday evening.
During the traffic stop, deputies smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.
Deputies searched the vehicle and located approximately 68 grams of cocaine, 58 morphine pills, some oxycodone pills, Alprazolam pills and half a gram of marijuana. After a search of one of the occupants’ clothing, 0.2 grams of meth and 0.1 grams of cocaine were located.
“Investigators were able to use the evidence located during this traffic stop to establish probable cause for a search warrant,” stated Chavis. “(Last) Thursday, investigators served the search warrant at a home on Racetrack Road and located a .40 caliber pistol with ammunition, a 12-gauge shotgun with ammunition, approximately 1.9 grams of meth, 20 oxycodone pills, 14.6 grams of marijuana, weight scales and other drug paraphernalia.”
Felkel and Dennett appeared before a Darlington County magistrate and received a $21,000 and $28,000 bond, respectively. Both remained in custody at the W. Glenn Campbell Detention Center as of Friday.
