Safety Checkpoint Leads to Discovery of Guns, Drugs

web posted March 18, 2014

COUNTY LINE Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputies were conducting a safety checkpoint at the intersection of Mt. Zion Road and Sandy Springs Drive Saturday afternoon when a Trenton man approached in a silver Lincoln Town Car. As one of the deputies approached the passenger side window he spotted a pack of cigarettes open with a "joint" wrapped in green paper inside the pack.

The driver, 30-year-old Desmond Demarcus Curry, was asked to step out of the car in order for deputies to investigate the suspected drugs. Once out of the car Curry told one of the deputies he had a pistol under the driver's seat. Another deputy located a Ruger P95 9mm pistol and seized the weapon. A records check  came back clear on the pistol.

After the arrest deputies inventoried the car and found two semi-automatic rifled in the trunk, an AR-15 and an AK-47. Deputies checked the rifles and both came back clear. They were placed back into the truck of the car before it was towed from the scene.

Curry was transported to the Edgefield County Detention Center and booked on charges of simple possession of marijuana and illegal carry of a pistol. The pistol was later turned over to an investigator.

Curry was released on Sunday on a $3,620 personal recognizance bonds. No trial date was available. The weapons charge is a felony and will be heard in General Sessions Court.
