Despite trying “frantically” to put on their seatbelt, two people were arrested on drug charges on Valentines Day, according to Summerville Police reports.
The driver, 35-year-old Jennifer Marie Hines, of 3567 Hwy. 100, Summerville, was unable to produce a driver’s license.
“She stated she was driving because her passenger David Lee Williams, 61, of Summerville was having leg cramps,” Officer Pritchett stated.
Hines then handed a pack of Palermo cigarettes to the officer and said, “There’s papers in it.” The officer found a hand-rolled marijuana cigarette inside.
“She then stated who gave her the pack and that it was because her [relative] needed the rolling papers,” Officer Pritchett stated.
As Pritchett was dealing with Hines, Officer Marvin Armstrong talked with Williams. Marijuana and a glass pipe containing suspected meth residue were found.
Hines was arrested for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, driving without a license on person and a seatbelt violation, according to jail reports. Williams was arrested for possession of meth, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession or use of drug-related objects and failure to keep drugs in their original container.
