Man Arrested for Driving Under Suspension Found With Drugs at Jail

web posted August 13, 2014

EDGEFIELD   Just when you think things can't get any worse, they always do. A Trenton man arrested on minor traffic charges by the South Carolina Highway Patrol on Monday found himself in deeper trouble, including a felony charge, during the booking process at the Edgefield County Detention Center. Jailers noticed that Charles James Nicholson Jr., 28, smelled of marijuana and asked the Trooper if any drugs were found at the time of arrest and were told no.

During the booking process jailers continued to smell the odor and later conducted a strip search and found Nicholson had a plastic baggie in his underwear that contained a total of 22 individually wrapped bags of marijuana inside.

The drugs were seized as evidence by a deputy who responded to the jail when the drugs were discovered.

Nicholson has been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, driving under suspension and a seatbelt violation. He was released on Tuesday on a total of $5,682 in bonds.

No court date was available, according to an incident report.
