Police seized a syringe of liquid, fentanyl and marijuana during a traffic stop on a car with a busted tail light Sunday morning.
Myrtle Beach police were patrolling the area of Flagg Street around 11:15 a.m. when an officer said he noticed the car and pulled it over in the 100 block of North Ocean Boulevard. The driver and passengers in the car told police they didn’t have any identification, according to an incident report.
All three denied having anything illegal in the car and police say the car’s owner agreed to let officers search.
“Upon searching the vehicle I found four empty syringes in the center console. I also located nine empty pink wax slips scattered in the front passenger area and one pink wax slip located in the center console containing a white powder substance,” Officer M. Jeslis noted in the report.
