A 39-year-old man was arrested in connection with drug trafficking charges after police said they found 22.1 grams of heroin and 3.8 grams of meth hidden in the truck of a car.
Just after midnight Friday, Myrtle Beach police responded to a narcotics call. They met with Drug Enforcement Unit and State Law Enforcement Division agents, who said they approached the car that was suspiciously parked on the 200 block of Myrtle Street, a police report says.
When the agents first went up to the car, a man inside jumped out and ran. As they investigated, they said they saw a used crack pipe on the floor in the front seat.
Authorities gained consent to search the vehicle from the driver. Under the trunk’s carpet, 81 wax slips and a clear bag containing tan power substances, weighing 22.1 grams, were discovered and field tested positive for heroin, the report states. Agents also said they uncovered bags containing a white rock substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine and weighed 3.8 grams.
Police arrested Christopher Bryan Bellows in connection with the suspected drugs. He was charged with trafficking heroin and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, according to the report.
