Two prisoner trustees stole drugs from the Summerville Police Department’s evidence room. The two Hayes State Prison trustees had stolen a key from the desk of a Summerville Police Detective and were helping themselves to cocaine in the evidence room.
Jerry Couch , age 42 and Troy Upton, age 37, both confessed to stealing the drugs. Upton apparently attempted to escape from the work detail but was quickly apprehended by Summerville Police Chief Stan Mosely. Both prisoners are facing numerous charges.
