Neighborhood shocked after man tries to sell drugs door to door

MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Neighbors in one Murrells Inlet development said they're in shock after a man is arrested for trying to sell marijuana and crack to several people door to door.

"I've never seen anything like this in my life," said Renee Elvis, a mother of two who lives in the Kings Court neighborhood. Horry County Police arrested 25-year-old Eric Godbolt after police captured him trying to sell drugs.

Neighbors said they saw the suspect walking around the neighborhood around 10pm Monday night. According to sources familiar with the investigation, one neighbor worked to lure the suspect to the home of an off duty police officer. That officer, sources said, worked with dispatch to help capture the Pawleys Island man.

"It can happen in your own backyard so prepare yourself," said Charlie Brewer, a homeowner in the Kings Court subdivision. On Wednesday, several neighbors said they were worried about the negative publicity the arrest could have on what's normally a quiet community.

Godbolt remains in custody at the J Reuben Long Detention Center where he faces multiple charges including: resisting arrest, possession of marijuana, and distribution of drugs.
