A senior at Central High School was arrested March 13 after allegedly assaulting a former girlfriend at the school.

A Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Department report submitted by Deputy First Class Mark V. Davis said Uriah Ian Roach, 19, 3277 Hwy. 151, Pageland, grabbed a 16-year-old girl by the wrists, called her an obscene name and told her she was not going to keep him from seeing his baby. The report said other students witnessed the incident.

Sheriff’s reports said Roach was also arrested Feb. 11 and charged with Driving Under the Influence.

What’s that smell?

A Pageland man was charged with Possession of Marijuana after deputies went to him on another matter. A sheriff’s department report said Deputies Graig Burns and Lee Lewis were attempting to serve a warrant and made contact with Eric Lavard Clyburn, 34, 172 Sanders Rd., Pageland, who said the person they were looking for was not there. Clyburn reportedly gave the deputies permission to enter the home and they smelled burning marijuana and found a lit cigar containing a “green leafy substance” smoldering in an ashtray.

Be careful who you park next to

A Marshville, N.C. man was arrested on drug charges March 14. A sheriff’s department report said Dep. Lee Lewis went to the Markette store on Hwy. 601 north of Pageland after another deputy reported smelling marijuana in a car next to his.

Lewis reported that when he asked Truman Lamar Rogers Jr., 4118 Canal Rd., Marshville, if there was anything illegal in the car he got a baggie of suspected marijuana from a shoe and gave it to Lewis. The deputy searched the car and reportedly found $785, a digital scale and more marijuana under the passenger seat, then looked in the same shoe from which Rogers had retrieved the marijuana and found 10 Hydrocodone and 58 Tramadil pills.

The report said Rogers was charged with Drug/Narcotic Violations and Distribution of Barbiturates.

How does your garden grow?

A Jefferson man was arrested and charged with Manufacturing Marijuana after the sheriff’s department received an anonymous tip.

A sheriff’s department report said Dep. Larry Tucker was told that Ray Charles Griffin 43, 169 Crosby Lane, Jefferson, was growing marijuana. Tucker passed the information on to narcotics officer Staff Sgt. Mike Irvin. When deputies went to Griffin’s home he admitted he had a baggie of the illegal substance in his pocket and showed the officers 60 marijuana plants he was growing.

The report said the lawmen also found an Igloo cooler in the home with 5 oz. of bagged marijuana and several marijuana pipes inside.

Pedestrian vs. vehicle

Pageland Police responded to a call of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle on March 16. PFC Randall Mullis reported he went to the corner of Mangum Street and Evans Mill Road and learned a five-year-old child had been struck on the foot by a car driven by Anthony B. Threatt, 205 Mangum St., Pageland. The child had been walking with an 11-year-old brother.

FirstHealth examined the child but his father said he would take him to the hospital to have the foot X-Rayed.

Chris Quick arrests Carlos Quick

A Matthews, N.C. man was arrested on speeding and drug charges March 16. PFC Chris Quick reported he saw Carlos Sanchez Quick, 32, 5040 Hillwood Court, Matthews, speeding at 52 mph in a 35 mph zone on the Hwy. 151 Bypass at Clark Street.

Quick stopped the driver and reported the strong smell of marijuana inside the car. The officer went to his car to write the speeding citation and called PFC Travis Johnson to back him up.

PFC Quick reported that Carlos Quick said there was no marijuana in the car, but he had smoked some earlier.

A search of the car turned up several containers of a “green leafy substance,” cigar wrappers and a wooden pipe. Suspect Quick claimed all the illegal items, so his wife was allowed to drive the vehicle away, according to the report.

Deja Vu for Quick?

History repeated itself March 17 when PFC Quick made another drug case under the same circumstances as the day before. He reported he saw Raheem Marsh, 19, 935 S. Austin Rd., Marshville, N.C. speeding at 49 mph in the same 35 mph zone where he stopped Carlos Quick on March 16.

The officer stopped Marsh and reported he could smell marijuana in the car. He again called for PFC Johnson to back him up. When asked about the smell Marsh reportedly admitted there was a partially smoked “blunt” in the car, but nothing else illegal.

Quick searched the car and found the blunt but nothing else. He reported that due to Marsh being honest with him he issued a citation and court date rather than take Marsh to jail. 

Assault & Battery

A Pageland woman was arrested and charged with Assault and Battery after allegedly attacking a Pageland man March 17. PFC Travis Johnson said the 49-year-old man lives with his attacker, Shiya Demesa Threatt, 29, 304 N. Hickory St., Pageland. Johnson reported the man tried to go to bed and Threatt became angry because they had visitors and threatened him with a knife.

The visitors reportedly told Johnson the same thing.

She had a sweet tooth

A Mt. Croghan woman was arrested and charged with Shoplifting on March 22. Sgt. Bobby Melton reported he was called to Bi-Lo in Pageland and was told by a manager that a store employee had seen Kayla Marie Kissiah, 17, 9453 Hwy. 265, Mt. Croghan, putting candy bars into her purse without paying for them.

 The report said the value of the candy was $14.
