Deputies find cocaine, marijuana in vehicle in traffic stop, officials say

An Avoca man was arrested Friday night after officers found several grams of crack cocaine and marijuana in his vehicle, according to a release.

A Richland County sheriff’s deputy stopped a vehicle just after 9 p.m. on Highway 80 just south of Highway 60 in Eagle Township because the registered owner of the vehicle had a felony warrant, officials said.

During the stop, 46-year-old Lemuel Anderson, who was driving the vehicle, provided an expired California driver’s license and an expired instructional permit through Wisconsin, according to the release. Anderson did not have a valid license.

A sheriff’s K-9 indicated a positive odor of illegal narcotics, and when deputies searched the vehicle they found 4.3 grams of crack cocaine, 10.04 grams of marijuana, $1,182 in cash, digital scales and drug paraphernalia, officials said.

Anderson was arrested on tentative charges of possession with intent to deliver cocaine, possession with intent to deliver THC, possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of felony bail jumping and operating a motor vehicle without a valid license.
