Two people were arrested on drug charges last Friday in Summerville after city police pulled the two over for not wearing a seat belt.
According to a report from the Summerville Police Department, an officer observed the two in a vehicle near Highway 27 and First Street, and could see that neither occupant was wearing their seat belt.
When the officer approached the driver’s side window he reported that he could smell a faint odor of marijuana. The female driver handed over a pack of cigarettes to the officer; inside, the officer found rolling papers and a rolled marijuana cigarette. Officers then searched the passenger and found “a glass pipe with heavy burn marks that is consistent with methamphetamine use.” Also in the vehicle, officers discovered a bag of suspected marijuana and some “orange pills and white pills.”
The driver, Jennifer Marie Hines, was charged with no seat belt, possession of marijuana less than one ounce and driving without a license on person. The passenger, David Lee Williams was charged with drugs not kept in original container, possession or use of drug related objects, possession of marijuana less than one ounce and Violation of the Georgia Controlled Substance Act for possession of methamphetamine.
