A Hodges man is now facing a charge of possession with intent to distribute marijuana after he was involved in a vehicle accident over the weekend.
According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were contacted by South Carolina Highway Patrol at about 3 p.m. Friday after SCHP officers found marijuana and a handgun in a vehicle involved in an accident at the intersection of U.S. 25 N. and S.C. 254. When deputies arrived, SCHP had one man, identified as Terrence Lamar Jackson, 26, of 104 Delta Drive, Hodges, in custody.
According to the report, Jackson took full responsibility for all the contraband located in the car, a 2007 Dodge Charger. Deputies found two mason jars containing about 50 grams of a substance believed to be marijuana and a .32 caliber Charter Arms revolver in the glove box of the vehicle. Deputies also found $767 in cash on Jackson, which was seized due to the probability of being involved in the illegal sale of narcotics.
According to the report, Jackson was ticketed by SCHP for failure to surrender plate, violation of beginner’s permit and driving too fast for conditions in addition to the PWID marijuana charge.
