Antonio Sentell Wofford, 30, of 260 North Dean St. and Justin Lamar Davis, 28, of 173 Westwood St. both were charged with trafficking cocaine.
According to a report released Tuesday by the Union County Sheriff’s Office, narcotics officers and deputies made a traffic stop on a green Ford in the Disney Distribution Center parking lot on Furman Fendley Highway. During a search of the vehicle, officers confiscated a clear plastic bag that contained around 28 grams of what is believed to be cocaine and $372 in cash. The vehicle also was seized.
Both Wofford and Davis have been released on bond from the Union County Jail.
A 74-year-old woman avoided being the victim of a flim-flam.
The woman told deputies she had been receiving around four phone calls a day from a phone outside the South Carolina area code. A man told her she had won $85,000 and needed to send money grams to Naples, Fla.
The report said the woman became suspicious and sent no money.
On 400 Blassingame St., a victim told Cpl. Scott Coffer Friday that she came home and found the back door open. Around $700 worth of items were stolen, including an X-Box, a DVD player, DVDs, X-Box games and jewelry. A witness said he had noticed a beige car in the driveway earlier.
Man flees traffic stop
Officers are looking for a suspect who ran from a traffic stop.
A report said Officer David Lee and State Constable Richie Brown were on patrol Sunday when they saw the driver of a 1999 Buick fail to stop at the stop sign at Porter and Lipsey streets.
Lee activated the blue light on the patrol car and the officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The driver turned down Chambers Avenue where the road is blocked at the end. They saw the vehicle jump the curb and Lee deactivated the light to discontinue the chase. The driver fled.
A three-fourths full Icehouse beer was found in the front seat, along with three pair of hair clippers.
