Man who reported robbery arrested

Myrtle Beach police charged a 20-year-old man with drug possession after he told police he was robbed of his wallet and cellphone by an unknown man, according to a police report.

Samuel Walter Krovitsky, 20, was charged with simple possession of marijuana after officers were called about 5:30 p.m. Monday to 1150 Seaboard St., police said.

Krovitsky told police he drove to the area to talk to someone and he allowed the man to borrow his cellphone, but then they argued about a drug transaction, according to the report. Krovitsky said the suspect grabbed his wallet and cellphone and ran into a nearby wooded area.

Police later found the cellphone in the woods and seized it as evidence. When officers asked Krovitsky if he had anything illegal in his pockets he told them no, but then removed a small container of marijuana, according to the report. Officers seized it.
