“It was not crack. He just bought it, tried to smoke it and it wasn’t crack,” the man arrested for loitering told police, who found a crack pipe on him early Sunday morning, according to an incident report.
Myrtle Beach police stopped 35-year-old Tony Nevail Myers, who was walking in the middle of Yaupon Drive, around 3:30 a.m. Officers said they had seen him walking the strip several times throughout the night with different people and that he “matched the description of a known drug dealer in the area,” according to the report.
Myers, of Myrtle Beach, was charged with loitering for drug trafficking and being a pedestrian on a highway.
As he was being searched during his arrest, police say they found drug paraphernalia on Myers, including a “crack pipe, push rod and beat rock” (slang for fake crack), according to the report.
